Periodontal Antibiotic Treatment | Marina CA

Gum Infection Treatment

Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gum line.

Doxycycline is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection.

  • It is placed directly in the infected areas—or “pockets”—in your gums.
  • It is applied right after scaling and root planing, the dental procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line—where brushing and flossing can’t reach.

Periodontal antibiotic treatment works quickly, right at the source of infection, and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. It helps to fight infection and inflammation, and provides improved results than scaling and root planing alone.
