In brief: May be chronic

After the first phase of treatment (a deep cleaning) the dentist should recheck you about five weeks later and there should be an idea then about how you are doing.
But periodontitis needs to be maintained or it will come back.

In brief: Depends

Depends on extent and severity of the disease and the treatment required for repair. Often the damage done is permanent.
Dentist and/or periodontist must decide on proper treatment for the type of gum disease that you have, and will need your cooperation in managing the healing process. Ask your dentist or periodontist about your particular case.
