Local Antibiotic Treatment


The goal of this non-surgical treatment is to create conditions that enable tissues in the mouth to heal. This is done in conjunction with reducing plaque, infection, and other causes of periodontal disease.

This office uses an effective treatment protocol for this condition that includes direct antibiotic placement of the affected area(s) in combination with scaling and root planing.

Scaling and root planing is a procedure that we use to remove plaque buildup and bacteria from the infected area around teeth.

The antibiotic chip, powder or gel is easily placed in the infected gums around your teeth to treat your periodontal disease and help promote healing after scaling and root planing.

Antibiotic application is administered quickly and easily. Application is comfortable, no bandages are required, and it won’t leak or fall out.

In about 2-4 weeks, you’ll have another evaluation to determine if this treatment has been fully successful.
