Sensitive Teeth? Pick The Right Brush For Pain-Free Brushing

For those with sensitive teeth and bleeding gum, brushing and cleaning interdental spaces can create pain and discomfort. Tooth sensitivity occurs as a result of receding gum and exposed dentin. Also, brushing too hard can damage enamel and cause the recession of gum. The build-up of plaque may cause gum disease which leads to gum bleeding and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasion on tooth structure and to better cleanse the gum line. A toothbrush with a compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed when brushing with a normal-sized brush head.  

Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

Keeping your toothbrush clean is vital for your oral health. Always rinse your toothbrush with water after using it. Store your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air-dry until the next use. Do not routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, as it  encourages the growth of bacteria. It is also important to replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.  You may also opt for toothbrushes with anti-bacterial bristles to prevent bacteria growth on the brushhead.
