    so i have braces but even before i have had a tiny pocket in my bottom front teeth and i am scared it will go deeper and i will have gum disease and it will fall out. i also kind of clench (not grind) my teeth i have realised and 'click them' and im trying to stop it.

    my dentist said to brush harder with a soft toothbrush but my ortho said it was because i was brushing too hard!! plz help

    You need to stop grinding your teeth.
    Sometimes a mouth guard can help
