Dentist told me to use fluoride toothpaste for my bleeding gums
I stopped using the fluoride stuff about a year ago but since my bleeding gums have gotten worse while using Euthymol (original toothpaste) he said that "it is not recommended to use original toothpaste fluoride is important or your teeth could decay more and more" or something like that.

My teeth are actually in good shape. It's just the bleeding gums that are problem. He said I have mild gum disease.

I have ignored the dentist and basically scrapped all toothpaste and started using baking soda instead. Have seen a mild improvement but gums still bleed a little while brushing.

He said to do flossing too but that has sodium fluoride also.

Should I just continue with the baking soda? I do oil pulling with coconut oil too but it doesn't stop the bleeding gums.

use corsodyl daily, or water down some normal clorsodyl and use it daily.

I have used Euthymol for the last 25 years, my teeth are fine, but recently i have needed to use corsodyl to prevent gum problems, i use it every other day or so, also use those small tooth picks to floss, you get em from the pharmacy, they're little rubber and plastic brushes that fit between your teeth, they come in three grades of thickness

No need for sodium fluoride

If you don't use fluoride paste, you will get cavities, and possibly periodontal disease.
Fluoride strengthens the enamel in your teeth, and will help them last longer.
Losing teeth can be traumatic - you want to avoid it at all costs.
