Weeks typically: Most cases of gingivitis are treated conservatively with removal of plaque and calculus by the dentist or dental hygienist then followed up daily by the total plaque removal by the patient at home using toothbrush, floss, oral rinses and tools like Proxy Brushes. Oral rinses may be over the counter mouthwash like CloSys or prescription like Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate 0.12%).See 2 more doctor answers

With cleaning: Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums, which is usually due to bacteria-containing plaque and tartar at the gum line. Daily brushing & flossing prevents plaque formation. Your dentist will need to physically remove the plaque and tartar. In the absence of bacteria and plaque, the body is able to heal the inflammation. Gingivitis can also be caused by other factors, please consult your dentist.See 4 more doctor answers
