In brief: Brush and flosss
Brushing and flossing regularly will help reduce bacteria counts in your mouth.
Gum inflammation/gingivitis is the bodies response to these bacteria. If the problem persists see a dentist. A mouthwash like listerine (alcohol free) can help as well.

In brief: Multiple treatments
I recommend careful brushing;not in and out but top down on upper teeth and bottom up on lower teeth.
I suggest you floss 2 times a day.I also recommend you rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide after flossing.See a dentist.

In brief: Depends on severity
If mild can be cured w good brushing/flossing.
See your dentist for instructions that are individualized for your problem...Make sure to clean between teeth daily. If gum pockets have formed or if gums receding will need comprehensive periodontal treatment. Your dentist may want to refer you to a periodontist (gum specialist) for rx.

In brief: Floss regularly
True gingivitis, limited to just inflammation in the gums, can be reversed with good oral care and regular dental visits.
You want to get it checked though to make sure it hasn't progressed to the more serious form of periodontitis.
