Every time I eat refined sugar I brush my teeth with 1.1

Customer Question

Every time I eat refined sugar I brush my teeth with 1.1 percent fluoride toothpaste. I floss on average 4 to 6 times a day. I use the proxybrush twice a day on both sides of my teeth. My teeth are clean and I know I have recession of the gums. Despite the fact that I use bluetooth oral b electric toothbrush on my teeth and a pulse electric toothbrush when I'm out of the house my dentist recommends very expensive grafting of the gums. Without this he says I'll start losing my teeth in 5-6 years.
