Describe your activity
One of the main signs of gum disease is the development of pockets or spaces around teeth as the gums lose their firm attachment to teeth. These spaces or gaps are called periodontal pockets. When periodontal pockets develop, gums are more likely to bleed, letting harmful bacteria into your bloodstream. These inflammatory bacteria can then negatively affect general health, increasing the risk of or worsening existing health problems.

What Are Periodontal Gum Pockets?

When you visit your dentist for regular checkups you might be aware they gently probe your gums, and you may hear them reading out various measurements to their assistant.

The dental probe is inserted into the small space in between your gum and tooth to measure the overall depth. If you have healthy gums, this depth will be around 3 mm, but any greater could indicate periodontal disease (see: periodontal disease symptoms).

Explaining Periodontal Pockets

You won’t be able to see if your gums have periodontal pockets as they are invisible to the naked eye but they are visible to your dentist who will carefully check them during a dental examination. To do this they will accurately measure the space in between your gums and teeth using what’s called a periodontal probe. This is a slim instrument that is gently inserted in the gap between your teeth and gums, allowing your dentist to measure the depth of this gap in millimeters.

When your gums are probed, it may make unhealthy gums bleed slightly but you shouldn’t feel too much discomfort. These readings provide your dentist with an accurate picture of your gum health.
