Perfect. Please take care as you do.
Brush your teeth twice a day consult a qualified dentist for professional cleaning of gums and teeth you should also use clohex plus mouthwash twice a day.
Professional cleaning for once alone will not control the problem. Maintenance of gums in healthy condition requires you to visit the dentist every 6 months for teeth cleaning. If you fail to do so, there is a chance that it progresses to severe form of gum disease. Home remedies include warm salt water gargling after every meal and proper brushing technique.
