Are you brushing correctly? Wide, side-to-side strokes can cause scrapes along your gum line. Hold your brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums, and make an up-and-down motion. Use short strokes. Brush outer and inner  tooth surfaces, back molars, and your  tongue. Don’t forget about those hard-to-reach areas. If you aren’t thorough, plaque has time to sit in your mouth and cause damage.
