How To Shrink Periodontal Pockets

Here is a link to the page in the video:  How To Shrink Gum Pockets

This video is all about generalized information.  If you have a specific question about your unique dental health situation, be sure to talk to your periodontist about that.  

The Hydro Floss is a powerful tool that has really helped a lot of people over the last 20 Plus years.  Yet, it remains relatively 'hidden' from the limelight.   

My personal experience is that it helped me to avoid an expensive gum treatment and it helped my gums to become healthy again.  

I'm not the only person that this has worked for.  You can read customer reviews here.  

Of course, your dentist or hygienist will be able to easily verify your results by measuring your periodontal pocket depths after using the Hydro Floss "effectively".   I suggest reading:  How to Use Your Hydro Floss Effectively on this site.

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.

Shrinking Periodontal Pocket Depths

Periodontal Pocket Depths Are Important Indicators Of YOUR Dental Health

If you do not know what these numbers are, you should ask your dentist.  This is something that should be checked during every office visit.  Although, it does appear that there are some clinics where these pocket depths are rarely if ever checked.

These Numbers Are Important

 If they come out much above 3mm in multiple spots, there is a good chance that your dentist will want to perform a special treatment.  Sometimes this takes the form of an SRP or 'deep cleaning' treatment.  There could be other recommendations as well.

Personal Experience

I was in this situation a several years back.   I did not have the deep cleaning done as I did not like the what it entailed.   In the US, these treatments can also be quite expensive.  Although, I have heard in other countries they may not cost nearly as much.

What I did use is a device called the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.    When I returned to the dentist, she said that my gums looked a lot better, the periodontal pockets were down to about normal levels.  She said:  "Whatever you are doing, keep it up."

I have sinced talked to a lot of people over the last 4 or 5 years and I do hear similar stories from other people.    Having said that, I must warn you that not every person or situation is the same and just because it worked for many does not guarantee it will work for everyone.

You must continue to work closely with your dental professional, they should be monitoring those periodontal pockets for you at every visit  to see where you are at.

Shrinking The Pockets

You should, of course, get your regular dental cleanings 2 to 4 times per year or whatever your periodontist recommends.   But why not use a powerful tool between office visits to help your periodontal (gum) tissue stay healthy.

The danger in deeper pockets is that there may be sufficient quantities of bacteria present to begin to destroy the supporting structure of your teeth.   This can lead to gum recession, loose and finally lost teeth.

This is why the periodontal pocket depths are so important to you.   Generally speaking, if you have them all at 3mm and below most dental health professionals will say that your gums are healthy.

You continue to work with your dentist on a regular basis,  but you have just do things at home to make your dental health better.  The device I mentioned above, I believe, can go a long way towards helping you as it has helped many others to do the same.


You can use the same tool to help you maintain your dental health.  If you are able to get your gums healthy with this method then you should be able to maintain them there as well.

Of course, I speak in general terms only here.  Specific questions about your unique dental health situation need to be addressed by your periodontist or dentist. 

There are no absolute guarantees that any one thing will work for you.  However, if you can help keep things healthy and avoid expensive and painful treatments, as well as lost teeth, wouldn't it all be more than worth it?    I think so.
