Hello! I take good care of my teeth; I brush and floss twice a day and rinse once a day. I go to the dentist for a routine dental check up every six months. Last year, during my dental cleaning, the dentist told me I had some 4-5mm gum pockets. I had no gum bleeding or any problems with my gums at that time.
A week later, I had a deep cleaning done. Since then, I became more conscious with my practices. However, my have become extremely sensitive and sore. They also bleed easily especially when I brush and floss. They seem to recede at a rapid pace. Is there something I can do to stop further gum degradation? I think I am having sensitivity due to exposed tooth roots. I look forward to hearing some of your suggestions. Many thanks.
