How Many Millimeters Can a Sulcabrush's Bristles Go Under the Tooth Gum Line to Clean the Sulcus?

My periodontists cares for what is left in my mouth. Besides deep cleanings every 3 months, regular brushing and using the sulcabruch, what else is there for me OR the dentist to do to close the mm gap? Flap surgery with my present periodontist always results in extracting the tooth. Worried.

No matter what type of brush usually 2-4mm is the most good luck
