In brief: Treat yourself
From personal experience periodontal disease can be effectively treated with supplements and oral probiotics.
Data shows that vitamin c with bioflavenoids, colic acid and coenzyme q10 as ubuiquinone can heal periodontal problems. Therafresh probiotics recolonized the mouth with beneficial bacteria and heal periodontal issues. Also doxycyline 40 mg / day decreases bad baceria.

In brief: Everyone's different
You may need a deep cleaning or gum surgery or both.
But don't listen to the people out there, it is not as bad as it sounds and it's a lot better than losing your teeth. Follow your dentist's advise.

In brief: Periodontal treatmen
There are several ways to treat periodontitis, depending on its severity.
The goal of periodontitis treatment is to thoroughly clean the pockets of bacteria and to prevent more damage. Treatment may be performed by a periodontist, a dentist or a dental hygienist. Treatment is most successful when you adopt a daily routine of good oral care.

In brief: Scaling ...
When diagnosed most dentists & periodontists will treat first with a scaling & root planing procedure.
If this first step fails to inactivate the periodontal disease, additional treatment of repeating the scaling & root planing & adding laser treatment may be prescribed. Additionally, medicaments can be helpful, after removing the debris and bacteria.
