When I went in for my appointment, the periodontist said I needed deep cleaning done because I have some 4mm-5mm pockets and a 6mm pocket. Three months after the deep cleaning, I went back to the for check up. She said I didn’t have any pockets anymore and my looked great.
Yesterday, I noticed sensitivity in my gum. After brushing, there was a slight bleeding around my molar on the top. My gum feels tender today. Can I have deep gum pockets again in just a few months? Aside from brushing and flossing properly, what else should I do to avoid having pockets in my gums? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
