I have developed gingivitis which is the beginning level. My front lower (4 teeth) are not aligned. Is braces the solution to do away with gingivitis? Moreover, if I go for braces it will even become difficult to clean teeth ending up with more deposition of tartar. What to do?

yes, braces treatment will definitely help. there r many reasons for gingivitis and one of the reason is mal aligned teeth. so teeth alignment will definitely help. new braces with good brands are small profile, means less cleaning required, so that will help u. its my advice to go for self ligating braces.
First you have to remove tartar by scaling.. then take vitamin c supplement.. and use toothpase Heklalava by Wheezal pharmacy(homoeopathic) And then once you have relief of symptoms.. then go for braces...
