  • It is better not to use the products like this without knowing the proper problem of the gums. Normally baking soda is used along with Hydrogen Peroxide to whiten the teeth. If you really want to maintain the health of the gums then maintain good oral hygiene with proper brushing twice a day, do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and can apply otc gum paint on the gums. This will take care of your gums. You can supplement your diet with vitamin C which  is good for gums. But if you have any major problem then you have visit dentist and get the treatment.
