can you OVER BRUSH your teeth!?

Let's talk about what happens if you brush your teeth too much!

Brushing your teeth more often than the recommended two minutes twice a day is perfectly fine. But only as long as you’re not being overzealous and overbrushing. Teeth are hard but not indestructible. If you scrub too aggressively or use stiff toothbrush bristles, it’s only a matter of time before you do permanent damage to your teeth and gums.
If you’re having a hard time breaking an aggressive scrub-brushing habit, work with your dentist or hygienist to find a solution. It could be as simple as changing your toothbrush or the way you hold it. By brushing correctly (and not overbrushing teeth), you can prevent unnecessary tooth pain, aesthetic damage, or the need for restorative treatments later on down the road.
