Brief Answer:
Looks like Gum recession.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Your explanation is pointing towards gum recession that commonly occurs due to gum infection due to poor oral hygiene.

So just applying any medicine is not sufficient.

You should consult a Dentist and if possible a Gum specialist is known as a Periodontist and get checked.

A deep scaling and root planning can be done.

It will help in reducing the recession further.

If still, it doesn't improve then you should get treated like Gum grafting done.

Also, start massaging with Chlorohexidine gel over the gums.
Suck a Vitamin C candy daily.
Do warm saline gargles.
Do antiseptic mouthwash gargles.
Use a soft toothbrush to brush your teeth.

Please revert back for more queries.
