With the advances of modern technology and medicine, our dentists can provide a wide range of periodontal treatments to care for your smile. One of these treatments includes antibiotic treatment. Antibiotics are a powerful way to help combat the harmful bacteria that cause your gums to become infected, inflamed, and irritated. In most cases, our dentists will combine an antibiotic treatment with other periodontal treatments, such as scaling and root planing, a gum graft, or pocket reduction surgery.
Depending on your needs and the condition of your gum disease, our dentists may recommend either an oral antibiotic or topical antibiotic. Many oral antibiotics are placed underneath the gum tissue, gradually releasing the antibiotic medication over a period of several days or weeks. Topical antibiotics will be prescribed by our dentist, and you will receive instructions as to where and when you should apply the medication.
Antibiotic treatments can be used to slow down the progression of gum disease and treat the early stages, such as gingivitis. When you visit our practice, our dentists can examine your oral health and help you know if you could benefit from an antibiotic gum disease treatment. Call us today to set up your appointment!
