I have been trying to practice a good lately after discovering some in my teeth. (I got them filled already). I brush three times a day, floss and rinse with mouth wash twice a day.
For the past few days I have run into an issue with flossing. My gums kept being inflamed, hurt and bled every single time. The dentist taught me the right flossing technique and said if I do it right daily for more than a week, all the bleeding and pain should stop. It's been almost a week now but my gums still get swollen and my teeth would hurt after I floss. Though the bleeding has subsided, my still get red and inflamed.
What should I do? Should I stop? Is there any alternatives to flossing?
