purging care

Hi. I realize that I'm going to get "just stop it" comments, and believe me, I'm trying... but:

What's the best way you've found (or had your dentist tell you) to protect your teeth after purging?

I gargle with baking soda immediately, brush my teeth with an extra-soft (Blue's Clues kids') toothbrush about a half an hour afterwards, and take calcium pills daily.

My main fear is my gums receding. I can see it already, and it terrifies me... but even the thought of dental pain and dentists and oral surgery doesn't seem to ring true enough for me to stop barfing my life away.
