How long should I have swollen gums after deep cleaning?

How long should I have swollen gums after deep cleaning?

Not long: If you're following good dental hygine routine, bleeding should reduce then stop over a few wks or less. Do you floss? Often times when we don't floss regularly or brush thoroughly some tissues don't get in contact with either floss or toothbrush, & become inflamed/irritated and gum disease can develop. A water pik might help too. Be sure to see your dentist regularly, esp if it doesn't clear. ...Read more

After a deep cleaning, it feels like I have no gums between my bottom front teeth. Is this normal nd why?

If the bone height is adequate the gum may regrow if the area is kept clean and healthy. I can;t define "normal" w/o seeing what your gums looked like before treatment. ...Read more

How many times do I need deep cleaning before my gum disease goes away?

How many times do I need deep cleaning before my gum disease goes away?

Not exact..: recovering from gum disease depends on MANY factors. It is not just ' how many' cleanings you will need: it is also 1) how severe was the disease?, 2) what is your home care ability to keep things clean?, 3) what is your 'gums' ability to recover?, etc.. More importantly, gum disease rarely disappears but rather needs preventive maintenance and evaluation (by a Dentist) on a REGULAR basis.!! ...Read more
