The Risks of Aggressive Brushing

People who brush their teeth every day usually get surprised when they find out that they have cavities. Brushing your teeth too aggressively can harm your teeth. Here are the risks of aggressive brushing.

Main takeaways about aggressive brushing:

– Erodes the enamel and exposes the tooth nerves.

– Causes sensitivity or pain when you eat hot or cold foods.

– Causes gum tissue to pull away from teeth.

Avoid brushing more than twice per day. Also, use a soft-bristled or an electric toothbrush and visit the dentist for a checkup.
