Hello hows it going.
I just have a query for you guys here.
I currently have gingivitis (bleeding gums) now i have tried everything at the moment, with changing toothbrushes, flossing, plaque remover etc nothing seems to work.
It currently effects the taste of water making it a real yuck taste in your mouth.
Now i was wondering if anyone knows of any other remedies to once and for all get rid of this problem.
Gingivitis usually results from months of neglect to your oral hygeine. What takes months to develop will also take some time to repair.
Continue with what you're doing: floss, a good listerine mouth rinse, and definitely brush about 3x/day.

I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

to add on to that be careful which mouthwash you use. regular listerine will actually irritate your gums more. There's a milder listerine now which still has a great antiseptic effect. The good thing as that your gums have one of the quickest regeneretive cycles in your body. Your gums should stop bleeding in a couple of weeks assuming you're constant with your oral hygeine.
