More sensitive: The acidity of the acid reflux and just possibly a hyperactive gag reflex may be creating your problems. Sometimes it is good to swish your mouth with very cold water or a strong mouth rinse prior to brushing, especially when brushing your tongue. Trial and error and try not to think about it when doing it. ...Read more

Is there such a thing as brushing your teeth too often?

Is there such a thing as brushing your teeth too often?

Definitely: I occasionally see patients who brush their teeth either too often or for too long a period of time. Anything in life can be overdone and cause problems. What happens, especially in older individuals where there has been some gum recession, is that they cause erosion or abrasion of the root surfaces of the teeth, which are softer and more easily eroded than tooth enamel. ...Read more

What to do if I have bleeding while brushing teeth?

What to do if I have bleeding while brushing teeth?

Floss daily!: Try twice daily flossing and careful vibratory gum line focused brushing. Flossing isn't about popping meat. It's about soft plaque/bacteria removal. Carefully glide between contacting teeth then wipe down the contour of the backside of one tooth then wipe up to where the teeth touch, "jump" your gums, then glide down the contour of the other. Bleeding always returns w/o daily flossing! ...Read more
