There are quite a few signs that you are not brushing your teeth as well as you could be. One of the more common signs is cavities. If you went a while without any, now you have had multiple visits in a row with a few cavities, this is a sign to be watching out for.
The same goes if your mouth recently started bleeding when you brushed. This is an early sign of developing gum disease. If you notice this sign, it is time to come in and get a thorough cleaning.
