A hard-bristled toothbrush is bad for your teeth.

 

A hard-bristled toothbrush is bad for your teeth.


The reason why some hard-bristled toothbrushes are still sold boils down to the fact that some consumers believe they’re more effective in cleaning their teeth.

But thinking that a hard-bristled toothbrush cleans your teeth better is a myth.

It can make your gums bleed and damage your tooth enamel, which is why dentists don’t recommend it.

What they suggest instead is a soft-bristled toothbrush because it removes plaque from your teeth and gums in a gentle way.

It can also reach areas of your teeth that a hard-bristled toothbrush can’t clean.

But remember that brushing too hard with a soft-bristled toothbrush is no better than using a hard-bristled toothbrush.
