Hi everyone, my name is Tracy and I have periodontal disease..I've been through alot this winter, two extractions, five fillings and now I'm all set and scheduled for four quad deep cleaning appointments..But my question is I'm brushing, using my waterpik pik pocket flosser, cleaning my tounge, and using antiseptic mouthwash twice a day and is this helping or making it worse?? I know that things won't change drastically until I get the SRP treatment done but it would comfort me to know that I'm not making things worse faster. This disease really is awful and I wish I had of known what I know now back when I was a bit younger..But I'm trying as hard as I can to save my teeth and that's what I have to look at.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and God bless!
