What can I do to make deep pockets shallower?


Making deep pockets more shallow happens as the disease stabilises.

Swollen areas of gum calm as the inflammation settles, and they shrink (imagine a spot on your skin when you were a teenager… once it heals and things settle down, right?).

There are many methods but often the least costly and least complex is following the Daily Self-Performed Care at home that you have been advised on. This is unique to you.

Then the dental professionals you have visited will be able to help you best by carefully cleaning the surfaces you can’t reach below the gum line.
