Hey I've been suffering with mental illness for a long time now and I've really let myself go it's hard for me to even book an appointment over the phone nevermind going into a dentist. I've recently went in and had a check up because I had an infected tooth which they took out straight away.

What toothpaste and mouthwash would you recommend because my gums get inflamed and bleed when I brush and it is uncomfortable at times thank you in advance

Congratulations on going for a check-up and getting the infected tooth sorted ?!!

Just went out and bought myself a colgate 360 toothbrush if they are any good. Thank you it was making me feel sick to the stomach but I feel 10x better. And the staff was very welcoming and friendly
