Crossroads Dental Cosmetic Dentistry of Longmont is proud to provide Atridox for our patients. Atridox is a major advancement in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is a locally applied antibiotic that is placed gently below the gum line into the pockets where bacteria thrive and cause infection.
Atridox is an easy to use gel that is applied with a syringe into the infected tooth pocket. It flows to the bottom of pockets and fills even the smallest spaces between teeth and gums. After Atridox is applied, it hardens upon contact with oral fluids (saliva) to a wax-like substance, and the antibiotic is slowly released into the surrounding infected tooth pocket.
This medical advancement allows for a more centralized treatment approach to periodontal treatment. During your appointment, we will determine whether or not Atridox is right for you.
