Smart Brushing Beats Aggressive Brushing

Most of our patients at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno brush their teeth (at least we hope so). However, there are many who brush improperly but don’t realize that their dental hygiene practices may be contributing to oral problems.

They may pride themselves on their daily dental hygiene, but frequency does not make up for an incorrect technique. One of the most common errors—especially for teenagers—is quick, aggressive teeth cleaning with a hard bristle toothbrush.

There is a certain logic to this treatment; when you want to clean smooth surfaces like bathroom tiles, you scrub with a hard brush, right? The difference is that teeth and gums require a certain finesses. While enamel is strong, the soft tissues in the mouth are not designed for intense scouring.

If you use hard bristles against possible cavity makers, froth at the mouth, speed through those 30 inches of tooth surface, and spit everything out in less than a minute, this post is for you.

Effects of Quick, Hard Brushing
:

  • Tooth decay caused by plaque that results from inadequate cleaning
  • Damage to teeth through abrasion
  • Weakened enamel
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum recession
  • Damage to existing dental work
  • Tartar build-up

Smart Brushing Beats Aggressive Brushing:

  • Plaque is soft enough to scratch off with a fingernail, so brush accordingly with soft bristles
  • Angling the toothbrush is easy and cleans effectively
  • Proper tooth brushing can prolong that wonderful professional-cleaning feel
  • Flossing is easier without sore, bleeding gums
