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 :bsmilie:

Same condition a coupe of years back until the dentist scolded me :embrass:

"Gums don't grow back!" he said. Although my gums dun bleed now, I still feel they are receding leh. Ice-cream cannot bite, must lick! :(

Can't imagine how you'd look like in a few years if your mum never bought the floss :p

drink a glass of water before going to bed.
Dehydration and dry mouth likely to cause halitosis. :bsmilie:

why fluoride dental floss? mint floss, can? but a warning, it is a highly addictive habit.
