Antibiotic Therapy

Some localized topical antibiotics can enhance your periodontal treatment.  In certain isolated circumstances, placement of antibiotic medicine can also reduce infection.  This antibiotic therapy is usually done in conjunction with scaling and deep cleaning.  This procedure is more often used for patients that have had previous periodontal repair therapy. 

Procedure: Topical antibiotics, in various forms, are precisely places in isolated areas to improve healing after the localized area is scaled and deep-cleaned.  Afterword the results are closely monitored during follow-up maintenance visits.
