There may be instances when brushing your teeth too vigorously or too often can cause additional harm. This is particularly the case if hard tissue has already been compromised. When combined with the mechanical action of brushing, even more enable can be lost.
When should you see a dentist?
– If you experience discomfort when eating hot or cold foods.
– If sugary foods cause pain.
– If you regularly grind your teeth or are aware of dental erosion.
“Dental erosion is a chronic loss of dental hard tissue caused by acid without bacterial involvement.”
