Only having vitamin c through orange or any other form is not going to eradicate your gingivitis.
Gingivitis is caused by local factors like plaque and calculus commonly known as tartar. This has to be removed by scaling and polishing.
Following this you can have vitamin c to improve your gum health.
Vitamin c helps in wound healing and controls bleeding due to gum infection. However routine teeth cleaning, warm salt water rinses, twice brushing and proper technique of brushing are as much important.
