Don't Brush Your Teeth With A Hard Bristled Toothbrush!

Updated on July 1, 2017

A Hard Bristled Toothbrush Not Good For The Gums

Many people think the harder you brush your teeth cleaner and whiter they will be. But, this is not true! It's how well you brush and floss your teeth that makes them bright, whiter and clean.

Since the hard bristles of a toothbrush are stiff and have very little flexibility they can be damaging to your gums causing them to bleed, become red, sore, puffy, very tender, the signs and symptoms of a condition called gingivitis. Which can lead to periodontal disease.

However, if you continue to use a hard bristled toothbrush it will eventually cause t tooth sensitivity, tooth enamel erosion, loss of the supporting bone of the teeth, loose teeth and tooth loss. Which are some the signs of gum disease.

So, the next time you go shopping for a toothbrush best pick a toothbrush with soft-rounded bristles to keep healthy gums and teeth..
