Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste is a hugely important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Flossing and the use of mouthwash are also highly beneficial to your oral health.
It is essential that you follow the advice of your dentist with regards to brushing your teeth. Just as those who do not brush their teeth regularly enough are likely to encounter problems with their teeth and gums, people who have a habit of brushing too regularly can also bring dental health issues upon themselves.
Such was the case for TV actress Helen Flanagan, whose recent Twitter admission that her habit of over-brushing was wearing away at her tooth enamel brought the matter into focus in the media.
Toothbrushing is not supposed to be done on an overly frequent basis, and brushing too regularly will cause your teeth to eventually become very sensitive as the protection is gradually worn away over time.
