How to treat a receding gum?

I've receding gum problem now. Initially my gums got swollen and bled badly. Though I visited a dentist who used painful method of scaling and recommended a mouthwash and homeopathy toothpaste. That helped for sometime, but again the process of deterioration has started. Should I go for Natural Herbal Remedies or consult a dentist once more for the same painful and non-reliable treatment??Thanks for helping me out.
