Hi Ulrika,

25 years ago when my husband went to the dentist, his gums were really bad and bleeding...he was sent to a periodontist who wanted to do surgery right away. My husband wanted a second opinion so he found a different periodontist. He was put on a hygiene program which has been successful and he has never had surgery. If you follow the maintenance pointed out by K2 it really can work in restoring gums....With both of us during our first year of maintenance (we are talking 20 + years ago) we were getting periodontal cleanings every couple of months...currently now about every four months...the periodontal cleanings are somewhat more in depth than a regular cleaning. Every time they do an examination, the depth of the gum for each tooth is measured. Number 7 or 8 is in the danger zone. Number 3 is good. I have had several number 7 or 8 areas and have restored them back to number 3 or 4. Some areas just didn't improve enough so I had have the surgery anyway. We have an excellent periodontist who always trys to go the other route before surgery. In the beginning it seemed like so much work, but now it's just routine and my gums never bleed
