In brief: Sonicare

Try a sonicare electric toothbrush--a patient once told me that she was upset that all of her life she had never really brushed her teeth until she tried the sonicare toothbrush.
Her teeth feel like they have just been cleaned by a hygienist every morning and night after every use. It really makes an incredible difference that you can feel immediately.

In brief: It's very simple

There are some simple basics that will keep it simple for you and work wonders if followed.
You don't have to over-complicate things. Simple means less time spent, and therefore more time for other things in your life to enjoy. Brush and floss properly after every meal. Use a tongue scraper 1x per day. Eat healthy, get sufficient rest, exercise. Good general health makes for better oral health.

And by the way, the reverse is also true. Good oral health makes for better general health. It's all inter-related.

In brief: Many

Electric toothbrush, waterpik oral irrigator, listerine mouth wash, flouride rinse, and , of course, flossing.
Also might use a stimudent for cleaning between teeth during the day. Good luck.

In brief: Various

I would recommend a nice mechanical toothbrush a good mouthwash and floss twice a day those with any fluoridated tooth paste should work well .
If the regime is good you probably won't need to see a dentist more than once in 6 months.

In brief: CoEnzymeQ10

Oneof the first reported benefits of this was for gingivitis (inflammation of gums).
It is normally synthesized in the body and has a vital function in energy metabolism. Older, as well as poorly nourished people, do not make it easily and it is therefor known as a "conditional" nutrient. Seniors should make it a part of their supplement program on the advice of their physicians.
