Subgingival Antimicrobial Irrigation is mainly used for flushing out bacteria in the mouth, which can help treat periodontal disease.

Subgingival Antimicrobial Irrigation is a dental procedure that uses a prescription strength antimicrobial rinse to flush out plaque, bacteria, and other toxins that are trapped in the between the teeth and under the gumline. This helps to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. The treatment is also used to apply antimicrobials under the gumline.

We recommend routine dental exams and cleanings from our mobile dental hygiene clinic to keep your smile unique. By staying on top of your oral health, you can reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease. However, if a periodontal infection does occur, do not worry; our mobile dental hygienist is well-trained and equipped to provide treatment that will restore oral health.

Subgingival Antimicrobial Irrigation is used in several ways to improve oral health. They include:

Interdental Cleaning: Subgingival Antimicrobial Irrigation is effective at blasting away debris, food particles and plaque buildup from between teeth. The irrigation process flushes out harmful bacteria within the periodontal pockets thus improving the health of gum tissue.

Treating bad breath ­: Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath. The condition is typically caused by tooth decay casued by rotting food particles stuck between teeth. Ordinary brushing at home alone cannot remove these particles; a better option is to use the jets from Subgingival Antimicrobial Irrigation to blast out the food particles stuck between the teeth and food particles below the gum line.

Subgingival cleaning: Oral irrigation is a highly effective and safe way to remove bacteria, food, and other toxins trapped underneath the gum line.

Antimicrobial treatment: Antimicrobial substances are often combined with water during oral irrigation and applied under the gum line to eliminate harmful bacteria.
