• The aim of brushing your teeth is to remove plaque, the white or cream-coloured sticky material which causes decay. Plaque is made up of bacteria, residues from saliva, and bits of food.

  • People think the harder you brush, the better you're going to clean that plaque off. But plaque is actually soft.

  • Plaque can often confused however with a harder substance called tartar or calculus, which builds up when plaque has been left too long on teeth and starts to absorb calcium out of your salive. Plaque can become tartar in as little as a week.

  • Tartar can be removed only by a dentist using a special tool called a scaler and won't come off with a toothbrush at all.

  • To remove plaque, it is good brushing technique, rather than brushing hard that matters most. Your toothbrush needs to be aimed at the gum line. That's the most important thing. If you're not getting your totthbrush at the gum line, you're not reaching where the plaque starts to grow.

  • If you brush hard, you would have created more problems for yourself and some new cavities for your dentist to fix.

  • This can make it difficult to eat or drink anything cold, hot or sweet.

  • Eroded gums can also look umpleasant because the exposed dentine is a dull yellow colour, compared to the shinier, white appearance of enamel covered areas of teeth.

  • Every day at work, dentists all around the world see this problem of brushing hard and the damage it cause to gum and teeth. Simplest and most cost effective thing to do is to use a soft bristled toothbrush and brush at least twice a day for 2 minutes.
