Hello. I have not heard of oil pulling helping gingivitis. Gum disease or gingivitis usually happens when there is bacteria in mouth. Especially on teeth. No matter what u do unless the root cause is eliminated u cannot b free of gum problem. U need to get ur teeth cleaned professionally once in 6 months to maintain good healthy habits. Pls visit ur nearby dentist so that they can suggest u good oral hygiene habits
