Locally Delivered Antimicrobials: What is their role in periodontal therapy?

This is a past event.

Part of the Continuing Dental Education series.

Treatment of periodontitis principally focus on addressing the removal of etiologic bacteria or plaque biofilm using mechanical non-surgical therapy and, in some cases, surgical therapy as well. However, it has been observed that certain patients continue to experience periodontal breakdown despite ideal therapy and maintenance care. Local delivery of antibacterial agents into periodontal pockets has been extensively developed and investigated as an adjunct to periodontal therapy to improve the treatment outcomes and obtain better sustainable results in these patients.
