We at Smiles R Us advise that you seek dental help immediately if you have any of the above issues. We offer deep cleaning and surgery options dependent on the severity of your periodontitis.
Even if you may just have gingivitis, we highly recommend having dental examinations at least twice a year, as well as brush your teeth twice a day and floss once per day. The health of your gums are important for your teeth, as it allows you to chew and gives you back your smile.
