It took nearly three quarters of a century for dentists to recognize the damage caused by many years of aggressive, hard toothbrushing. Toothbrush abrasion commonly results in substantial erosion of the gum tissue and deep grooves in the teeth.
No matter how hard the brush or how thorough the technique, toothbrushing alone will not clean between the teeth.
The solution? Ideal dental hygiene practice must include dental floss, brushing teeth after every meal (at least twice a day), and regular professional dental care.
Replace your toothbrush at least every 3-4 months.
The same success may be achieved with an electric brush, using the same technique described above. Even the best electric brush does not replace dental floss.
