Dentomycin used in conjunction with Scaling and root planning (SRP) achieves a marked reduction in bacteria in patients with periodontal disease, according to the manufacturers.
Now Dentomycin can offer added benefits, as it also produces a positive effect on tissue and bone generation by inhibiting destructive collagenases, exerting a positive anti-inflammatory action and promoting connective tissue attachment.
Available from Blackwell Supplies, Dentomycin is a periodontal gel containing 2% minocycline, an antibiotic well known for its ability to eliminate key periodontal pathogens .
Dentomycin binds to the tooth surface and is released slowly, attacking the bacteria and maintaining the low levels achieved through mechanical debridement. Minocycline is known to carry a minimal risk of provoking bacterial resistance, allowing patients to benefit from the treatment ensuring optimal results.
The makers claim it can effectively reduce pocket depths and bacteria levels while actively promoting periodontal healing, It is supplied in easy to use, pre-filled applicators that allow the delivery of the gel directly into the periodontal pocket for immediate effect.
