Vusi, the most common cause of gingivitis is poor hygiene. Other causes include herpes, vitamin deficiencies, allergic reaction, diabetes, drugs and any serious chronic disease. I can’t discuss all these things as I don’t have enough time (and they also don’t pay me enough). You are welcome to ask any specific question you have, but just post them as a new question otherwise I will miss them. Good luck.
