Regular brushing & flossing.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in.

Its very easy to maintain good care of your teeth & gums. You need to do regular brushing twice a day along with flossing.
Also use 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwash once daily half an hour after brushing.
Do gum massage with gum tone gel twice a day.
Visit your dentist every 6 months for regular check-up.

Hope I answered your query

Wishing you good health
