Why Are Soft Toothbrushes So Important?

Posted on 8/10/2020 by Dynamic Dental Office
Why Are Soft Toothbrushes So Important?We cannot emphasize enough the importance of using a toothbrush. Unfortunately, some of our patients ignore us and end up with problems with recession and dental decay. A medium or firm brush gives you the illusion that you are cleaning your teeth more proficiently. However, these brushes are too abrasive.

Why a Soft Toothbrush Should Only Be Used

You should only use a soft toothbrush, as it cleanses your teeth without causing any damage to the enamel or gums. When you damage the enamel, your teeth can become discolored or form cavities. Therefore, you defeat the whole purpose of brushing when you use brushes that are not soft and pliable. Plus, a soft bristle brush can more easily clean along the gum line because of its flexibility.

What Happens When You Opt for a Firmer Brush?

A brush with firmer bristles will clean off more than unwanted plaque and residue. It also scratches the enamel and causes it to break down and de-mineralize. What makes things worse is if you choose to brush with a more abrasive dentifrice, such as baking soda. When we tell a patient, he or she has recession or cavities, they often say, “But I brush!” However, what they fail to add is the type of brush they use. Indeed, what you choose for a toothbrush can mean the difference between a healthy smile and future dental problems.
