Tip #1: Don’t Brush Too Hard
Brushing your teeth regularly is part of good oral hygiene, but if you brush too vigorously, you can cause more harm than good. Brushing your teeth too hard can wear down enamel, irritate your gums, make your teeth sensitive to cold, and even cause cavities. To avoid these problems use a soft bristled toothbrush with light even pressure. Also look for the letters ADA-American Dental Association on the toothbrush box, this ensures the bristles have been tested and are firm enough to remove plaque, but soft enough not to cause damage.
