I use The Doctor's Brush Picks. They are interdental picks and I also use Oral-B super floss. I was using the CVS super floss but I would break it apart because it was really thick.These tools are helping my gums to come closer to my teeth, which supports the pocket closing, however you still need the pocket cleaning, and root & scaling by the dentist or periodontist. Once your gums come closer to your teeth you need to adjust the size of what you are pushing through your gums. You could cause serious damage to your gums. Some of the brushes, floss and picks will be harder to get through. Use tools that you can get through.I forgot to mention that the poop smell was coming from more then just one tooth but I narrowed it down to one with the dentist help. Pay attention to wear you smell the smell. At first it was coming from the right side of my mouth, later the left and then just a small part of the left.
