  • I used to have really bad gingivitis and I found that a good mouth wash made all the difference. I use listerine which tastes really bad but helps.

  • I have one and it can happen from brushing too much or from brushing hard. Brush in circular motions then brush your top teeth from the gum down and bottom teeth gum up. Mine still isn't completely back to normal and it's been over a year.
