We use a Doxycycline antibiotic gel called atridox, that is applied locally to help treat Chronic, Adult Periodontitis (gum disease). It is placed gently below the gumline and its bioabsorbabilty eliminates the need for removal; it breaks down on its own. The gel delivers a 21-day dose of localize anitbiotic which eliminates the need for oral antibiotics.
Atridox has proven to help
- reduce bleeding
- reduce probing depths
- gain clinical attatchment
It provides precise placement for targeted therapy of infected gums.
Scaling and Root planing along with Atridox allows for superior treatment of Periodontal Disease.
