Once u have a deep cleaning to remove gingivitis and remove plaque and reduce inflammation. How long does it take to heal & eat normal again?

Dr. Dinh Bui Dr. Bui
1 doctor agreed:

Gingivits or perio?: A treatment of gingivitis is a good regular cleaning and good home care. A treatment of periodontitis (progression of bone loss or attachment) required a deep cleaning, occlusal adjustment, follow up and/or surgery to control the disease. Gingivitis takes anywhere from 1 day to a week to heal. Periodontitis must be evaluate and compare radiographically in 4-6 months to determine the outcome.

How does gingivitis go away?

With cleaning: Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums, which is usually due to bacteria-containing plaque and tartar at the gum line. Daily brushing & flossing prevents plaque formation. Your dentist will need to physically remove the plaque and tartar. In the absence of bacteria and plaque, the body is able to heal the inflammation. Gingivitis can also be caused by other factors, please consult your dentist.
