Patients who are periodontally involved or who do not comply with self-care instructions should be educated about antibiotics and antimicrobial rinses as an adjunct to their oral hygiene regimens. Many antibiotics and other chemotherapeutic agents have been used as adjuncts to mechanical periodontal therapy with mixed results.
