Can brushing too hard cause a toothache?

Dentist answers

Brushing too hard can certainly contribute to tooth sensitivity and mild toothache due to gum recession or enamel erosion. If you experience tooth pain and you're using a hard-bristled toothbrush or applying excessive pressure while brushing, consult us at Royal Dental Whittier for personalized advice on proper oral hygiene techniques.
