I visited my dentist for a checkup and he says my gum pockets are too deep. Here this nearly every other year.
I am dissatisfied with the answers I've received about how I can better manage this problem through home care.
I used to have better success when using a rotating electric tooth brush (not a back and forth round head but individual rotating bristles) combined with a product called crest gum care. Neither of these products are made any longer. Crest has released other toothpaste products that they say replace this product, however I have a sensitivity to them and cannot use them.
I brush and floss daily, but there is no progress at home using this routine.
Anyhow, I haven't found a good solution on the market available for the home consumer that assists with this or is targeted to correct this specific problem that is working.
1. Any suggestions on what I might try off the shelf to help with this problem?
2. Why aren't dentists offering more helpful advice to help their patients make more progress with this when away from their office?
