I am suffering for a very long and need your help/advice. I have deep pockets in my gums. My Dentist thinks food particles get stuck in the deep pockets and cause my gums to inflame. This inflammation results in a bad breath that is taking a toll on my social life. My dentist cannot offer any permanent solution and is asking me to come for cleaning every two months. My gums have receded substantially. I floss, brush and even use a water pike after eating food but the inflammation does not go away. Food seems to inflame all teeth except the front and bottom teeth. I will appreciate any advice for a permanent solution to my persistent issue.

Go see a periodontist (gum specialist). The best money you'll ever spend.
