How long does it take for gums to tighten back up around the teeth after scale cleaning

Q. Hello, i wanted to know how long does it take for gums to tighten back up around the teeth after a scale clean as i had one about 2 and a half monthes ago and on one of my teeth the gum seems to be coming away from it inbetween 2 teeth at the top on the bottom teeth.

A. You need to go and see your dentist and have the gums assessed the tooth may have an infection or lost some bone.
