How To Shrink Gum Pockets

how to shrink gum pocketsWhat if you know you have deep periodontal pockets?   Maybe your dental hygienist and or dentist told you so?  

Are you stuck feeling that your only hope is an expensive and potentially painful treatment? (Anesthetic wears-off after all)

What about the long term effects of such treatments?   Always get full disclosure about a treatment and the possible side-effects.  If you don't ask, you might not be told.

Working With Your Dentist

You definitely want to continue working with your dentist or find a new one.   You'll need them anyway to verify or disprove your progress.    So stick with your dentist or get a new one.  In either case, be under the care of one.

What's The Scoop On These Gum Pockets (Periodontal Pocket Depths) ?

Generally speaking any pockets above 3mm are considered 'unhealthy' by most dental professionals.

Therefore, generally speaking, you want all of your pockets to be 3mm and below.

Shrinking Them

Shrinking these pockets basically means making the gum tissue healthy again.   So, more brushing and flossing can certainly help and should be done.  But are they going to be enough?  If they were enough, why do so many people still have gum problems?

Many people, including myself, have had good luck with the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.   My pockets shrunk and my gums became healthier.  My dentist actually told me, "whatever you are doing, keep it up".

I tried other things before the Hydro Floss, but the Hydro Floss was what worked the best and most effectively for me.  For others too!  No two people are the same, so you can only be sure by testing it. But, I would say it works for a LOT of people.

The Test To See If It Works For You 

This is where your dental office comes in.  You will be having them validate your progress or lack thereof.  

Use the Hydro Floss for a solid month.   Use it effectively.  

Then go back to your dentist and have them measure your pocket depths.   Seeing Improvement?  GREAT.  Keep it up.

If not, then you know it didn't work for you and something more or something else is needed.  But, I think the chances are really good that you'll see improvement.

In any case, your dentist is the one to ask about specific questions regarding your unique situation. Get your dentist or hygienist to tell you if those pockets have shrunk or not.  Then you'll know for sure if it worked for you.
