Antibiotic Periodontal Treatment

Antibiotic periodontal treatment is an effective way to treat gum disease. Antibiotic treatment may include a wide variety of antibiotics to help alleviate symptoms and treat the early stages of gum disease. To learn more about antibiotic periodontal treatment in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and to make your appointment with our dentist, Dr. Atem Reed, call Cherry Hills Dental at 877-743-7977 today!

Our dentist may recommend an antibiotic treatment to combat your gum disease and begin the process of restoring your oral health. Antibiotic treatment, also known as antimicrobial therapy, is often an excellent solution for periodontal disease. It may be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other periodontal treatments to improve your oral health.

If it is determined that an antibiotic gum treatment will benefit you, our dentist will most likely perform a scaling and root planing treatment to clear away plaque and tartar from your mouth. In more severe cases your antibiotic therapy may be preceded by gum surgery. The antibiotic medicine will then be placed directly into the infected periodontal pockets to fight bacteria. Antibiotics used in fighting periodontal disease usually contain doxycycline, minocycline, tetracycline, amoxicillin, macrolide, or metronidazole. Common antibiotics used in gum disease treatment include Arestin®, PerioChip®, Altridox®, Actisite®, and Elyzol®.

Please follow all instructions provided by our dentist after you leave our office. Following post-treatment care instructions and maintaining a thorough oral hygiene routine will maximize the effectiveness of your treatment and help you mouth heal.
