Hello, weak gums could be because of deposits on teeth surface or food lodged in between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. Brush your teeth twice daily, you can use any good sensitive toothpaste. Night brushing is very important. Floss regularly. Rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months. Gap in between the teeth can be filled by 1.orthodontic treatment,2.composite or veneer fillings , 3.crowns.

The treatment regarding gap closure would depend on the nature of your gum problems. Many types of conservative treatments are possible to close the gap in between teeth but you have to visit a dentist for the same.

Hello maam. Greetings of the day. The reason for weak gums might be due to deposits on your tooth surface which have started pushing down on your gums. These deposits are not removed on regular brushing hence you need to visit a dentist and get a professional cleaning/ scaling done. It has to be done every 6 months to maintain oral hygiene as well as gum health. The gaps can be filled by orthodontic treatment (braces), veneers, crowns or composite fillings.
Next Steps
Start using a mouthwash and floss on a daily basis.
