Medications are not used to treat gingivitis. However, the use of certain medications may increase your risk of developing the condition. These medications include oral and injectable contraceptives, cyclosporine, phenytoin, and calcium channel-blockers.
American Dental Association answeredGingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease that causes the gums to become red and swollen and to bleed easily. There is usually little or no discomfort and it can be reversed with treatment in the dental office and good oral care at home.
