Hi. The above medicines Will not work for Submucous fibrosis. For gingivitis- Rinse your mouth properly after eating anything. Brush twice daily especially after meals before going to bed. Visit a dentist for Scaling/ cleaning. Do salt warm water rinses. For Submucous fibrosis- Quitting of tobacco habit is a must. Intralesional corticosteroids into the cheek areas. Surgery is the last option.

Gum infection is the most common cause for the bleeding gums, get scaling and polishing done by a dentist. Brush twice daily.
