I just wanted to write and ask about people's experience with how long it takes gums to get better after a deep clean? I had one quadrant done about 5 weeks ago and the other 3/4 done two weeks ago tomorrow. My gums are looking much pinker in most places, but the areas where I had the most problem is still a bit red (but not as much as before) below the gumline. Also there is an area between my two top front teeth that was quite a dark red colour before, it does look better but is still not pink. I took metronidazole for 5 days and am brushing and using interdental brushes twice a day, and also flossing at bedtime. The hygienist told me to keep using corsodyl as I'm still having treatment so I have been using that for about a month now (with a week in between where I used retardex instead).
Apart from flossing more and brushing more times a day I'm not sure what else I can do to try and encourage them to heal. I'm also eating better, not drinking alcohol and am taking a multivitamin plus extra C and B vitamins.
Does anyone have any tips I could use? Will I just have to be patient? I have a check up with a new dentist on 24th October and another 30 min appointment with the hygienist on 11/11.
Thanks for reading,
