Extensive Brushing can harm your teeth

Stop hurting your teeth while brushing.More than 90% of people are comfortable using horizontal strokes while brushing with their toothbrushes which may be less effective.

The following causes worn out enamel & exposes dentin resulting in hypersensitivity.

  1. Extensive forces from the arm coupled with
  2. Abrasive toothpastes &
  3. Horizontal motion( back & forth ) causes the teeth to abrade at the neck exposing the dentin causing hypersensitivity.

Alternatively using mild vertical motion with forces only from the wrist is more than enough to clean your teeth off the food debris.

Also avoid frequent use of abrasive toothpastes.It is recommended to rinse thoroughly more often during the day after any meal or drink.
