In brief: Gums

Get a professional exam by your dentist and cleaning by your dentist/ hygienist then brush and floss effectively at home and continue with regular check ups and cleanings.
I recommend timing your brushing after flossing and brush for 5 minutes covering all surfaces of all teeth. You will be surprised how good your gums and teeth feel and look.
