Suggest treatment for gingivitis infection

My husband wakes up each morning and also through the day always has the taste of blood in his mouth. He went to A DENTIST and he said it maybe a mild Gingivitis infection and to use a mouth wash . He is on Warfarin 9 mgs a day for a long clot he got in leg mid May.

Thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. The gingivitis or gum infection can present with bleeding gums and warfarin is a blood thinner it might aggravate the chances of bleeding gums. consult a oral physician and get your teeth cleaned. and maintain a good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily and rinse your mouth thoroughly soon after eating anything. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
