The First Line of Defence in the treatment of Chronic Adult Periodontal Disease

Periodontal health is a crucial element in most dental treatments, and for over 14 years Dentomycin has been helping dentists fight back against periodontal disease

Dentomycin, active ingredient Minocycline, is proven to significantly reduce key periodontal pathogens and pocket depth1, reducing inflammation and destroying harmful bacteria (when used in conjunction with scaling and root planing the pocket depth reduction can reach 42% over 12 weeks!2).

Dentomycin is an effective tool to aid periodontal health, with several key features and benefits including:

? Slows down the periodontal destruction process
? Does not interact with alcohol
? Leaves no unpleasant taste in the patient?s mouth
? Inhibits harmful collagenases to encourage tissue & bone regeneration
? Promotes connective tissue attachment
? Actively promotes healing
? Easy to use with a practical, pre-filled applicator

With excellent benefits and proven results, Dentomycin 2% minocycline periodontal gel is a potent weapon against periodontal disease. For uncompromising standards of patient care, start using Dentomycin in your practice today.
