However, if you frequently use hard brush strokes it can lead to damaged and bloody gums. Instead of scrubbing with force, gently sweep your teeth. Additionally, a new toothbrush can be the problem, as they tend to have harder bristles. Before you start using it on your teeth and gums, make sure to soften your toothbrush, so you don’t hurt your teeth and gums.
