Since having my deep cleans “root planing” I now have gaps. Will my gums stop receeding and my gaps go away? I feel like they look worse!


Gum disease inflammation is just like inflammation on your skin.

Imagine a spot or pimple on your skin as a teenager… it is swollen and red and uncomfortable. Once it settles it shrinks. The same happens with gum around your teeth.

If you have lost bone as a result of periodontitis, the highest level gum can only sit around 2-3mm from that bone foundation though. Amongst professionals we say “bone sets the tone”.

But rest assured there are things that can be done cosmetically for the small black triangles if you wish. This can be done once the gum condition is stabilised.
