How the Traditional Nylon Toothbrush May Be Causing Your Gums to Disappear

Do you diligently take care of your teeth and gums? With regular brushing, flossing and professional cleanings, you should be doing enough to prevent receding gums and gum disease, right? Maybe not! You may be shocked to find out that more than three out of every four adults over the age of 35 has some degree of signs or symptoms of periodontal (gum) disease. And, when you consider that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, you probably want to know if there is something else you can do to keep a healthy smile. Most people don’t realize that they could be contributing to gum recession each time they brush their teeth. Yes, that seems contradictory to everything you’ve ever learned about dental care, but the reality is that brushing too hard and too often with a nylon bristled toothbrush may cause gums to recede or disappear. Our daily brushing routine can not only lead to gum erosion; it can also wear away the thin enamel of the teeth. As roots become exposed, teeth become sensitive, and root decay can begin. Don’t wait for gum disease to jeopardize your smile. Download Dr. Gruber’s Guide to Understanding and Reversing Gum Disease and Gum Recession.
