Gentle brushing of teeth is an important part of a good oral health regime. Brushing too hard can result in teeth sensitivity and also irritate the gums and hasten gum recession.
Key takeaways:

– Brushing too hard may result in cavities requiring treatment by a dentist as it can remove protective enamel.
– Without the protective enamel, the tooth’s nerves feel temperatures more and can begin to hurt as a result.
– Removing plaque requires little pressure, so a toothbrush with soft bristles is sufficient.

Aggressive brushing can irritate gum tissue and cause your gums to recede back from your teeth. Gentle brushing is key for both teeth and gums for optimal oral health.
