There aren't any: Gum infections can't be cured with pills, ointments, snake oil, emollients, or salves. Gum infections are very serious, destroying gum tissue and the underlying bone that supports the teeth. Contact a gum specialist, a Periodontist, and ask about payment options. Contact Social Services for locations of dental clinics. Seek treatment at a Dental School.
