Can bone regenerate after periodontal disease?

I am a 32 year old male. I want to know if bone can regenerate after periodontal disease?

Yes with proper treatment.
Typically not, there is not currently a predictable treatment to get bone to reattach safely to the tooth root once the bone loss has taken place.
Yes. But only to a limited extent.
Periodontal disease is defined as bone loss around your tooth. Bleeding gums is defined as gingivitis. Bleeding gums can be reversed but the loss of bone cannot.
Luckily yes. This can be done with stop if infection and advanced regenerative techniques such as bone grafts.
