As we all know, brushing your teeth is one of the most important things you can do to maintain a healthy smile. You may think that brushing your teeth several times a day will keep them squeaky clean, but in this case, there can be too much of a good thing. Read more about the downsides of over brushing your teeth.

What Is Overbrushing?

It is recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes. Brushing more frequently or for a longer period of time could actually be causing damage to your teeth and gums. One unfortunate side effect of over brushing is that your teeth can become more sensitive as the protective layer of enamel gets worn down more quickly. Another problem related to brushing too frequently is gum damage. If you’re brushing too many times per day or too aggressively, the tender tissue of your gums can become irritated and even start receding.

How Often Is Too Often to Brush Your Teeth?

As a rule, brushing more than three times a day is not necessary for most people. Some people feel the need to brush after every meal, but this could cause more harm than good. If you feel like you have food in your teeth or you’ve eaten something particularly garlicky for lunch, try swishing with water to dislodge any food particles or using mouthwash to refresh your breath instead of brushing. When you do brush your teeth, be sure to use a soft bristle brush and gentle circular movements.
