Regular tooth brushing is a must if you want to maintain your healthy, beautiful smile. Brushing your teeth is a habit that is an important part of your daily life, so you should make it as comfortable (and enjoyable) as you possibly can. If your tooth brushing experience is consistently a positive one, you will find that you actually look forward to doing it – instead of just rushing through the task to get it over and done with.
Does your toothbrush feel comfortable inside your mouth when you brush your teeth? If not, you may need to find a toothbrush that fits your needs better. If your toothbrush has a head that is too big, you may constantly bruise your gums and soft inner mouth tissue when you use strong strokes. If the head is too small, you may have to exert more effort to reach the back of your mouth to clean those areas.
The strokes you use also have an impact in your comfort level. Use firm yet gentle strokes when brushing teeth; avoid too much force and pressure when handling the toothbrush, since this can lead to injuries to your gums or soft tissue areas. The bristles of your toothbrush can also have an effect in how comfortable your tooth brushing will be. If you have sensitive teeth and gums, choose a toothbrush with soft bristles for better comfort.
