The can be filled in easily.


This was mentioned to you before by another poster upthread. Get them taken care of.
that wasnt whats going on, so I just went ahead and took a couple pics. One pic you will see the gaps on my left side of my mouth(right side of pic), and i took just a general pic of my progress, note that my teeth were disgustingly yellow just a month ago, now they are very clean, even moreso than the pic looks.

My suggestion is to see a dentist. If that’s an abrasion, a cavity or even something with your gum thru can diagnose and treat. We have a few dentists on the board they may be able to tell you what that is.

I had thought people already suggested that the last thing you probably need is more power! You still seem to be lost in the weeds OP.

The differences between brush models are pretty fine details. As long as you actually use the brush for the recommended length of time on a regular basis it will work. Your enamel is already damaged...why risk more abrasion by using the more powerful brush? You are removing plaque and food, not cement!
I think a water flossed is superior to dental floss because it stimulate the gums and keeps them healthy.

It’s great that you are taking care of your teeth. It’s too bad you waited so long. Go to a dentist. He or she will give you a plan to tackle your issues from most urgent to least, so you can fix things as your budget permits.

i said my teeth arent damaged in any way, its my gums in 2 different spots that seemed to have dissappeared and exposed the underside of 2 different teeth. im not dumb enough to be asking about more powerful toothbrushes if i knew my teeth were being damaged.

now again, can someone tell me if the "oral b pro-5000" is more powerful than the 500 model, or is the 5000 just more electronically advanced?

Just go to the company website and compare them.

The 500 has 2D oscillation and a 2-minute timer. https://oralb.com/en-us/products/ele...ric-toothbrush

The 5000 has 3D oscillation, extra timers, sensors, and lot of other stuff, plus bluetooth! for those who need to spend extra money on unnecessary gadgets and like to make simple things complicated. It's just a toothbrush, people.

If your gums are receding your teeth are being damaged. You need to see a dentist.

I have an appointment next month. I just started using sensodyne pronamel enamel repair. i lightly brush my teeth using the "gentle gums" brushhead at night after my last snack before bed. These brushheads are expensive as heck, cost $36 for these oral b gentle gum brushheads.
