Q.

Gingivitis

My Husband broke his jaw in a car accident a couple of years ago. From this he suffered from gingivitis which eventually cleared up. He has gingivitis again and it looks terrible. It looks as though it is eating away his lower teeth. He is using listerine. We have just come off our medical aid. Is there any medication that we can get from the pharmacy for him?

Medication alone will not help. You need to have the condition treated. You need to see a dentist or periodontist
