Abstract

The management of periodontal diseases has included both non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Non-surgical treatment traditionally has referred to the role of mechanical instrumentation of the root surface with either scalers or curettes. However, the introduction of locally delivered anti-microbial medications, which can be placed directly into a periodontal pocket, has provided the practitioner with another treatment option. This article looks at the different locally delivered anti-microbial medications being used in the non-surgical management of periodontal diseases.
