Abstract

"Selman Waksman" first used the term "antibiotic" in 1942 to refer to any material produced by a bacterium that inhibits the growth of other micro-organisms in high dilution. The pathogenic bacteria, the patient, and the medication are the three main components of the antibiotic periodontal therapy idea. Patients with attachment loss or with aggressive types of periodontitis or those with periodontitis linked with underlying medical conditions are the best candidates for systemic antimicrobial therapy. The three main objectives of Periodontal Therapy are disrupting biofilms, suppressing potential periodontal pathogens throughout the entire oral cavity, and halting the illness. The microbial etiology of inflammatory periodontal disease provides the rationale for the use of antibiotic medication in periodontal therapy. This idea is predicated on the idea that a certain bacterium causes destructive periodontal disease and that antibiotic agents can be present in humans in doses greater than those required to kill or inhibit infections.
