I will be having my teeth & roots scaled and planed starting in a little over 2 weeks. Is there anything I can do now to help in the healing and perhaps make the recovery a little less painful and with less bleeding? My gums are very tender right now but I'd be willing to start brushing more often with a soft toothbrush if it will help. Or will I just be irritating my gums unnecessarily, possibly making myself uncomfortable and making things worse by messing with them? I will be taking an oral antibiotic and I rinse fairly often with Peroxyl. Is that enough?
