Never had fungus in the gums and I wouldn't recommend this while your pocket is healing, however, I use baking soda for toothpaste to help ward off fungal growth in my mouth every single day! Notice I did not say toothpaste with baking soda in it. Not only antibiotics can cause fungal infections but prednisone has flared up a many case of oral thrush as well. Been there once...don't plan on going back. Controling the acidity in the mouth is good for the teeth anyway! i.e.; bad cola! Hope it clears up soon for you!
