Can You Brush Too Often?
You may hear that you are supposed to brush after each meal, but then there also is the recommendation to brush twice per day. So which is it? While brushing twice a day is a good habit, brushing too often can wear down the enamel, making your teeth more sensitive and more at risk for injury or decay.

Make sure you brush your teeth once each morning, ideally right when you get up. Then, make sure to brush your teeth and floss right before going to bed each night. That way, when you go to sleep, there’s nothing left in your mouth to harm your teeth while you sleep. During the day, simply rinsing with some water or eating foods that naturally clean teeth can be enough reduce your risk of decay.
