I do that too, if you find out, make sure to tell me.

Try not jamming the toothbrush down your throat.

Well, Maybe its because you put your tooth brush back in your throat too far or you might have a sensetive gag reflex causing you to gag on your tooth brush but either way, you might have to keep your brush in front of your back teeth away from your uvela or whatever if that doesnt help, CONTACT A DOCTOR IMMIDEATLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

do you shove your brush down your throat? or maybe because you're not using toothpaste

Probably because you are pushing the toothbrush back too far into you mouth. You might have a very sensitive gag reflex. Concentrate on breathing through your nose as you brush. That helps me. The other problem might be that you are swallowing some toothpaste.

Its a normal reflex when you brush your tongue.

Either try switching you tooth paste


If you scratch your tooth brush on your tongue, try not to go to far back.

Hope this helps!

Quit jamming the brush down your throat.

your brushing to deep!!!
your pushing the toothbush to fr back!!!
dont go past your teeth when brushing!

I get exactly the same, the noise makes me wanna be sick.
Maybe your parents brushed your teeth too hard as a child, and you are now subconsiously sickened by brushing teeth.

Hey Shy guy: My dentist's hygienist says that you only have to really brush the front two thirds of your tongue. You shouldn't get deeper than the area that is covered in white film. If you go deeper than that, then you run into the gag reflex area. The back of the tongue is usually clean enough after a good gargle with mouthwash, so don't scrape that far back, ok? Hope that helps - Best of luck!

I don't understand, but I usually scrape my tongue while brushing my teeth. I gave my whole mouth a clean feeling. During scraping, I feel like I'm about to throw up. I try to reach as far down the throat as possible. Some people say not to do it, but that's what I do.

You just have a sensitive gag reflex...Some people do and some don't. I don't gag when brushing my teeth, but I do when brushing my tongue. Everyone's different...

Are you brushing your tongue? That happens, so dont stick toothbrush so far down throat.

You might be sensitive to the type of toothpaste. I know when I go to get my cleaning, the fluoride always makes me throw up when I get home. Try changing your toothpaste.
