One-stage full-mouth versus partial-mouth scaling and root planing during the effective half-life of systemically administered azithromycin.

Abstract

BACKGROUND One-stage full-mouth scaling and root planing (FM-SRP) in combination with systemically administered azithromycin was shown to be clinically and bacteriologically effective in the treatment of chronic periodontitis. However, FM-SRP requires 2 hours for completion. Azithromycin has a long half-life. Therefore, if SRP of the full mouth is performed… (More)
