1. The myth about strength
Reality: Have you ever wondered why we brush our teeth? Obviously, we do it to keep them healthy, but what we’re really doing is breaking down dental plaque: a soft layer of bacteria and leftover bits of food that cover your teeth. And because the layer is so soft, there’s really no need to use force. Gentle strokes with a soft brush do the trick. Brushing too hard can damage both the protective enamel and the gums around your teeth. In other words, brushing too hard can actually lead to cavities and inflamed gums.
3. The myth about blood
Reality: This is one of the most common misconceptions about oral health. A study conducted in the UK showed that two in three people rinse their mouth with water after brushing their teeth. However, rinsing with water or mouthwash immediately after brushing washes away fluoride, the most important ingredient of toothpaste. Fluoride protects the tooth enamel and helps maintain acidity levels in the mouth. You can boost the effectiveness of fluoride if you just spit out the toothpaste instead of rinsing.
