While each human body is different which makes it impossible to definitively answer this question, I can provide information and subjective experiences.
The only objective measurement for gum disease is something called periodontal pocket depths.
Most dental professionals would agree that when those pockets are at 3mm or less your gums are healthy.
Most would also agree that when you are at 4mm or more, you have a problem. a.k.a. gum disease
Usually when this happens, dental offices would like to perform a SRP or ‘Scaling and Root Planing’ on you.
This is an expensive and painful (after the anesthetic wears off – if they use one) experience.
How I Shrunk My Periodontal Pockets
My dentist wanted to do a SRP or ‘deep cleaning’ on me for quite some time. I kept saying no to the treatment and tried to find something that would work.
I tried various toothpastes and mouthwashes, essential oils and oil pulling (although I may have used the wrong kind of oil). If you are going to try it, I suspect coconut oil would be a better choice.
Nothing worked for me! And after several visits the dentist was still after me for the ‘deep cleaning’ treatment.
Finally, I found the HydroFloss Oral Irrigator that you see pictured above. It worked! It shrunk my pockets down and the dentists said, “Whatever you are doing, keep it up. You don’t need that treatment anymore”.
She didn’t seem interested in knowing what I did. Which I found quite strange.
