I do/did and keep it under check by doing the following:

-brush with a very soft toothbrush, I use Sensodyne extra soft
-floss once a day, use a floss that slides in easily and doesn't hurt your gums, may need to experiment by buying a few kinds and trying them (I find thin unwaxed are the worst)
-use a rubber-tipped pick to clean along gum lines, I do this once a day and it removes any trapped gunk from right along the gum line of each tooth
-be gentle: this goes for flossing, brushing and using the rubber pick, go slowly and deliberately

proper brushing: for upper teeth start with the toothbrush on the gums, gently massage and then brush down over the tooth. Don't brush sideways or up.
For lower teeth, again start with toothbrush on the gums, gently massage and then brush up over the tooth, don't brush sideways or down.

And lastly, find a good hygienist. I went to a few different places before finding one that cleaned my teeth without hurting.
