Oral B - Love your gums

I have nice teeth thanks to having a brace as a teenager, they are a fairly good colour and I have no fillings. However since being pregnant with Leon more than 7 years ago my gums haven't been great. My gums bleed quite a lot when I brush and over the years they have definitely reseeded more.

My husband and I have been using the new Oral B for the last couple of weeks and I really like the toothpaste. It has a really nice flavour and texture. We think it has an abrasive texture, it feels like your teeth are getting a very gentle exfoliation (I'm a beautician this is the only way I can explain it!). I do feel like my gums have bled less, but the appearance hasn't changed. 

When I do visit the dentist I have always taken all the children with me, so they can see what needs to be done. Thankfully it has never been a big deal for any of us and they quite happily sit in the chair and have their teeth checked over. And of course the best thing about visiting is the sticker afterwards.

I wouldn't say I have any great routines or tips other than the obvious ones. I really don't floss every night like I should. And I truly believe that some people just have 'better' teeth than others, and I'm so glad I seem to be one of those people. I have no fillings, crowns or anything like that, to be honest I don't think I have ever had a scale and polish! 

But my gums are a problem and I'm hoping with some long term use with this toothpaste combined with more flossing and mouthwash they will get better!
