Antibiotic Therapy

Periodontal procedures performed at Pittsburgh Dental Spa (such as scaling and root planing or pocket reduction) are used to treat gum disease. To improve their overall effectiveness Dr. Runco may decide to use an adjunctive antibiotic therapy. These antibiotics, taken in combination with the initial procedure, will greatly reduce the risk for infections to return by killing the problem causing bacteria. This will also help complete the healing process more quickly.
