In brief: See below
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums.
Tooth paste will not cure.

In brief: PerioProtect works
No toothpaste will give you the results you need.
A dentist trained in the use of this non-invasive system will be able to eliminate your gingivitis (gumline swelling and bleeding). Gingivitis has many factors, but bacterial reduction on a daily basis has been shown to be very effective. www.perioprotect.com.

In brief: None to cure
No toothpaste on the market can "cure" gingivitis.
Gingivitis is a reversible disease. The best way to cure gingivitis are professional cleanings and excellent home care. Colgate total pro gum health toothpaste has been clinically proven to decrease gingivitis by reducing the formation of dental plaque that causes gingivitis.

In brief: See a dentist
See a dentist to get a professional cleaning which will cure the gingivitis.
Gingivitis will come back if the professional cleaning isn't followed up with brushing and flossing correctly. Make sure the dental office show you how to brush and floss correctly.

In brief: Not one best
The cure for gingivitis is excellent home care.
This means good brushing 2 or 3 times a day with flossing at least once a day. Regular detal exams and cleanings are important. So is a healthy diet. Xylitol can help. There is no one toothpaste that is best so pick one that you like. That most important factor in curing gingivitis is you.

In brief: Wrong question!
The toothpaste doesn't matter so much as how you brush, how often you brush, do you floss at least once daily and do it correctly.
Gingivitis is caused by bacteria and toothpaste does not control them as much as an effective daily routine of removing them. Listerine can be a good addition but does nothing if the brushing and flossing routine isn't there every day.
