The fact of the matter is: You need to brush much less aggressively. The problem? You hear these words but you aren’t really sure how to implement the changes you need to become a gentle brusher. We know this might seem like quite a hurdle in your dental hygiene experience but we are here to reassure you that it is not! With some easy tips, you will find yourself brushing with reduced pressure to the great benefit of your oral health.
Tip: Try An Electric Brush
One of the quickest and easiest ways to get your brushing under control is to say goodbye to your manual brush and hello to an electric brush instead. Why so? Well, you won’t be doing much pushing. Instead, you’ll be directing the brush as it creates all the massaging for you. Of course, you can also choose a model that’s been manufactured with a feature that stops the motion of the brush when you apply too much pressure.
Tip: Let Us Show You How To Brush
It’s entirely possible that all you need for improved dental hygiene is a quick demonstration and a face-to-face Q&A session. By learning about what you’re doing wrong and how you could be doing things right, you can return home with the required knowledge for effective, gentle care.
Tip: Give Yourself More Time
A common cause of overly aggressive brushing is rushing. You’re trying to get to the finish line so you accidentally press too hard. Make things better by scheduling your dental hygiene and planning on taking the full two minutes you need for each brushing session. Slowing down will let you focus and gently clean your smile.
