What is periodontal antibiotic treatment?

Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, can be treated in a number of ways. One type of periodontal treatment involves using antibiotics to kill bacteria and improve your oral health. At Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care, we use oral rinse antibiotics to eliminate the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. By eliminating the infection-causing bacteria, periodontal antibiotic treatment can effectively prevent the disease from spreading and progressing further.
