Position paper: the role of supra-and subgingival irrigation
in the treatment of periodontal diseases.
Some techniques for applying antimicrobial subgingivally, such as subgingival irrigation
, involve local delivery but not controlled release.
Each group was then assigned to a self-care routine consisting of either routine oral hygiene only or routine oral hygiene plus twice daily water irrigation with the Pik Pocket[R] subgingival irrigation
The discussion of non-surgical approaches goes beyond mechanical debridement to include subgingival irrigation
, systemic antibiotics and locally delivered antibiotics.
