Suggest treatment for gingivitis

Hi!

I believe i have had gingivitis for a while but did not know about it. I am trying to get better by using Sonic spinbrush toothbrush associated with Crest Pro-Health to fight gingivitis and biotiene mouth wash. I started to notice my skin are peeling and so I'm guessing its the toothpaste that is doing it because it never happened before when I use regular toothpaste. So what am i suppose to use now for gingivitis if Crest Pro-Health or Biotine mouth wash isnt working?

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The gingivitis is because of the gum infection secondary to the deposits. Consult a oral physician and get your teeth cleaned once and maintain oral hygiene after that.
The other possible cause of the gingivitis could be open bit or mouth breathing. If it is because of open bite then the occlusion of teeth has to be corrected. Mouth wash will maintain the oral hygiene, you can continue to use mouth wash, But cause has to be removed.
The peeling of the gum has started after taking that tooth paste, then you have to stop that tooth paste and use some other tooth paste.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
