Associations of Dental Scaling with chemical compounds

  • 3 regimens of topical metronidazole compared with subgingival scaling on periodontal pathology in adults [11].
  • All implants received supra- and subgingival scaling, with half of the implants receiving adjunctive controlled local delivery of tetracycline HCl (test) [12].
  • Elimination of A. actinomycetemcomitans at periodontal sites was a prerequisite for gain of clinical attachment of > or = 2 mm or decrease of probing depth to < or = 4 mm after subgingival scaling plus minocycline (p < 0.01) [13].
  • The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of a systemic antibiotic (doxycycline) and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (ibuprofen), administered either separately or combined, as an adjunctive treatment of scaling/root planing (SRP) [14].
  • BACKGROUND, AIMS: Oraqix, a new non-injection local anesthetic, lidocaine/prilocaine gel 5%, has been developed to provide pain relief in association with periodontal probing and scaling/root planing (SRP) [15].
