ive been having this prob of slightly receding gumlines. and for the past few months, the gum around my canine tooth was red and could bleed sometimes. i was very worried. i saw my dentist, he told me to brush and floss, but i conveniently disregarded the floss part. i used listerine, changed toothpaste, everything, but still it was red and sore.
then the other day, my mom just bought a new pack of dental floss. i decided to start flossing. guess what, within 2 days, my red and sore gums turned a healthy pink. now i can see that the wounds that usually bled are healing nicely already.
so two lessons that i hope u all can pick up from me
1) brush your teeth and gums. floss them everyday using fluoride dental floss
2) listen to your dentist
