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!
