Can Antibiotic Treatments Fight Gum Disease?
Even the best deep cleaning treatment cannot hope to get rid of all bacteria. To help make root planing and scaling more effective, Dr. Steven Airey can prescribe an antibiotic treatment. These come in different forms (such as pills, gels or mouthwash), but they all do the same thing: attack the bacteria causing plaque and gum disease.
