How long does it take to cure gingivitis?

Posted by: BrianJow  (4 years ago)
Hello all,

My dentist told me to treat my gingivitis with bacterial, gargling it twice everyday. And if after 3 days it still hasn't healed then he told me to come back. 5 days have already passed and it's still swollen. So i want ask how long does it take to cure gingivitis?

Thanks in advance,

Time taken to cure gingivitis differs from patient to patient and the severity of disease.what you need to do is practice home care methods well and use a mouthwash like chlorhexidine twice a day.
