  • The gum infection is either because of deposits on the teeth or becauseof the food impaction. The reason for this is poor oral hygiene. The warm saline rinses and flossing will not help much as you have to remove the cause of gum inflammation. For this you have to go to the dentist for cleaning done. Till then you can keep doing warm saline rinses and try to maintain very good oral hygiene. YOu can massage your gums with gum paint which is available OTC. This will also help. For more on gum diseases you can read the following article from our website which will be helpful to you for understanding the things.. http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
