Using a hard bristle toothbrush is good for your teeth and oral health!
It is very important when choosing a toothbrush we choose one with soft bristles. Brushing your teeth with a medium or hard bristle toothbrush damages the tooth enamel and gum tissue which can often lead to gum recession and abrasion of the enamel. The myth about a hard bristle toothbrush cleaning your teeth better is just wrong. A soft bristle toothbrush is a lot more flexible allowing the bristles to reach between your teeth and gums. It is also easier on the teeth to assure not causing damage. Give your teeth and gums a break and make sure you use a soft bristle tooth brush!
Soft brushes are designed to be gentle on your teeth and gums, but don’t throw those hard brushes out , they are good for ring around the collar and cleaning around faucets and little corners!
