So would I: There is NO scientific proof that pills, potions, ointments, emoluents, poltices, rubs, or snake oil are effective at treating gingivitis. Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease and can usually be eliminated with scrupulous oral hygiene. See our Dentist or Hygienist for instructions, and don't waste your time or money on specious pie-in-the-sky products.
