I had my teeth cleaned yesterday and treated with fluoride. The oral hygienest said I had made a lot of progress since my last visit in December. The periodontitis is almost under control… just a little bleeding in some of the really bad gum pockets where I’ll eventually have to have teeth removed. For now, my gums are getting healthier. Brushing with the Sonic toothbrush has really helped, as has increased flossing and use of a strong anti-bacterial rinse each night. I’ll need to continue, of course, but this goal is officially completed. 6 years ago

I’ve scheduled a check-up/cleaning for March 8th. The gums on my lower left side have healed up quite well since two teeth were pulled back in December. I’ve been quite diligent about using my sonic toothbrush twice a day, flossing and using an antiseptic rinse each evening. Depending on how the check-up goes, I’ll consider this goal done and schedule the next two extractions. Not much fun, but you do what you gotta do. 6 years ago
For Christmas, I got a sonic electric toothbrush. It’s too late to save the eight teeth my dentist has said need to be pulled (he’s already yanked two of them), but my oral hygienist says that brushing with a sonic and flossing regularly could help me keep my remaining teeth. I have not had a cavity in decades, but my gums became infected. Practicing good oral hygiene is not an option, it’s a necessity. 6 years ago
