After an expensive dental year last year I improved my cleaning routine. I started flossing daily and brushing 3 times daily instead of twice.
After 6 months I needed no treatment on my teeth but my gums were WORSE. Last time my gum scores were 1s and 2s. Now they are all 2s and a 3. The area with a 3 now has an infection and I have antibiotics. The emergency dentist did an x-ray, there's no tooth damaged but I have a pocket there. She suggested interdental brushing in that area instead of flossing. I tried this and the smallest brush fits in the gap but nowhere else in my mouth!
So does that mean I have to keep flossing which is making my worse? What am I supposed to do?
