Locally Administered Antibiotic Treatment

In Periodontal Pockets

Learning Objectives:

After watching this video, the viewer should:

  • Understand the process of administering locally applied antimicrobials into periodontal pockets
  • Be able to visualize the three-step process of 1) Assembly 2) Delivery 3) Replacement/sterilization

This video demonstrates the assembly and use of locally administered antimicrobials (LAA) in an oral environment. Locally administered antimicrobials are one of the ways that practitioners can combat periodontal disease in high-risk patients, and are applied directly to the patient’s periodontal pockets to eliminate bacteria that form under the gum line. The animation will show the viewer how to assemble and prepare the handpiece to deliver the antimicrobials, explain and show how to deliver the minocycline once the handpiece is prepared, and how to change the antimicrobial cartridge or disassemble and sterilize the handpiece when the process is completed.
