In brief: Floss!

Good brushing and flossing, and perhaps use of a good mouthrinse like listerine.
If it is just gingivitis then this will be beneficial, but if it's progressed to a more serious form, affecting the bone, your home care will not cure the problem.

In brief: Control not cure

Gingivitis can be contorlled with brushing after meals, flossing at least once a day, and getting regular teeth cleaning form a dentis/dental hygenist.
It is not cured in the sense that you have to keep up with the treatment, one shot of dental cleaning will not "cure: it.

In brief: Gingivitis

Start with a dental examination to determine severity of your periodontal disease.
Have your teeth professionally cleaned. Maintain your health by brushing gently but thoroughly at least 2 minutes 2x/day and flossing or using WateerPik 1x/day, EVERY DAY. Have regular (at least 2x/year) professional examinations/cleanings. If disease is more than gingivitis, specialist may need to treat.
