In brief: Improve Hygiene

Brush and floss daily everywhere, but at this point you may need a full mouth cleaning to start.
If you already have calculus (tartar) build up, then it needs to be removed first. You may also want to look into federal health centers that may be near you and you may qualify for reduced fees.

In brief: Take personal charge

Gum disease is a highly treatable condition and while it does invoke professional dental intervention, the cost of care is usually well within most individual's ability to pay.
Dental insurance should be viewed as a coupon that helps subsidize your care, but ultimately it is your health! if you are truly destitute, you can seek help at a dental school or free clinic. After treatment brush +floss!
