HelloYou need to see a peridontist.Root scraping and cleaning if this is severe.It will take several sessions.If beyond that, it needs surgery in some cases.In the meantime, meticulous attention to dental hygiene.Ask your dentist for a referral.

That should be a last resort, as all teeth would have to be pulled.That is not the way to go.See my premium services offer and we can go into alternatives if you accept that.Otherwise, click a positive here on this post.Find me as needed.
