It depends how deep the pockets are. However, professional dental care is a must, as well as strict at home care. Dentists and their assistants can do a deep cleaning to clean out the pockets and the teeth below the gum line.

This question is for a dentist, especially a periodontist. It is an important question, which is why it needs to be directed to a dental professional. CNA's, HHA's and caregivers are not legally permitted to comment on medical prognosis' outside their training and certification. Their training definitely includes knowledge of proper oral hygiene, gum care and being alert to specific conditions which require a call to a qualified medical professional. It does not include knowledge of gum disease prescriptions, nor should they prescribe. They may only implement a gum disease treatment plan per instruction from a dental professional. Google does not qualify as a dental professional. Actually, Google will give different answers to this question. Be careful.

You can help to reverse receding gums by massing them daily in a downward direction. Also flossing daily helps to prevent any gum disease, decay or infections.

Yes, they can grow back. Combine 1/4 cup of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup of water and swish mixture around in mouth for 25-30 seconds. Split the rinse out. Repeat this process 2-3 times a week until desired results are obtained.

Receding gums cannot be reversed as this occurs naturally, especially with older folks or sometimes caused by gum disease but it can be stopped or treated to slow down the process. A visit to the dentist will be advisable for cleaning and treatment.

In my case, I have receding gums due to brushing to hard, and using a rotarry brush. My dentist tells me they are getting better, but I still have some way to go!

Unfortunately receding gums are a common condition, Even with good oral hygiene. Aging and genetics can still cause gum loss. I suggest talking with your dentist about using natural remedies and possibly some treatment to help slow down and reduce the process.

Gum recession can't be reversed. so This receded gum tissue won't grow back at all by itself. BUt, mild gum recession doesn't put your mouth at risk of gum disease. You may need to have occasional deep cleaning treatments called "scaling and root planing" to treat gum recession.

I would recommend reaching out to a dentist. Gum recession is not something to take lightly and if not dealt with properly could lead to severe dental issues. Deep cleaning or antibiotics are just two simple ways to try to reverse gum recession! Another piece of advice, be careful while brushing. Circular motions with not too much pressure has always been recommended.

Simply by Flossing will usually help. Sometimes if you experience pain while flossing add some peroxide 1/2 tsp with a cup of water and swish this is your mouth before you floss will help not only clean but help with inflammation and the pain over time you should see a huge difference, if not you should see your dentist and be sure that there is nothing more serious going on such on gum disease.

There many ways to treat receding gums naturally.. The first one a person can use sea salt rinse which is a mixture of warm water and sea salt.. The second one is a rinse that can help especially with inflammation is sesame seed oil which is a mixture of 1 tablespoon of sesame seed oil and swish in mouth for 15 minutes.. I don't know anyone who has or had receding gums.. I use google a lot to get my information.

I don't believe so. However, with proper dental hygienic management, advancement of the issue can be stunted.

I don't think so, but my dentist told me to brush my gums and to rub the place where the gums meet the teeth with a rubber-tipped probe. Not sure what it is called, but a dental thing. Slows down receding gums. I also floss & use proxi-brush \cc

always floss after brushing, and use a little baking soda. Most important to keep plaque at a minimum by dental cleaning 2x a year

There is no way to reverse receding gums. Once gum tissue has pulled away from the teeth, it will not grow back. It is a good idea to look at what might have caused the recession in order to prevent further damage. Brushing the teeth too hard, using a hard bristled toothbrush and smoking can all cause damage to the gums. There are treatments for receding gums, such as a gum graft,--or a less invasive procedure, known as the "pinhole surgical technique", (PST). Of course, practicing good oral hygiene by having regular cleanings and checkups is important for overall oral health. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

There are certain things you might have to do but other than that you will have to contact a dentist and have them take care of it. They also offer payment plans.

I like to always consider natural remedies for this problem. Consider using a 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and a 1/4 cup of water, swish the mixture around your mouth for 30 second then spit it out. 2 to 3 times a week.

Depending on the severity, in some cases, yes, it's possible to reverse. again, depending on the severity and the cause, some people can use natural remedies like green tea, aloe Vera, vitamin C supplements and improved dental hygiene to hopefully reverse receding gums.

The short answer is Yes! Bleeding gums can often be reversed by flossing more often. Start very gently at first and floss daily.

Brush your teeth daily twice a day, and flossing makes a big difference, and if you are a smoker that is one of the main reasons for receding gums.

Mild gum recession can be treated by your dentist by doing deep cleaning also called tooth scaling. Plaque and tartar that has built up on the teeth and root surfaces below the gum line is carefully removed and the exposed root area is smoothed to make it more difficult for bacteria to attach itself. If deep cleaning doesn't work,gum surgery may be required to repair the damage.The best way to reverse naturally, is to take good care of your mouth. Brush and floss your teeth everyday and see your dentist or periodontist at least twice a year. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush and ask your dentist to show you the proper way to brush your teeth. other ways to prevent gum recession is to quit smoking if you smoke, eat a well balanced and healthy diet, and monitor changes that may occur in your mouth.

Receding gums cannot be reversed. However, switching to a soft bristle tooth brush, flossing daily, and not brushing your teeth hard can help prevent it further. Having regular dental checkups are key to help identify and prevent any conditions (gingivitis) that can contribute to receding gumlines.
