Irrigation as a Home Therapy

The best weapon against periodontal disease is exceptional home care. In addition to the use of an electric toothbrush, floss, and interdental aids one of the best tools in irrigation. Using an antibacterial rinse to irrigate the soft tissue reduces the bacterial population subgingivally. This will reduce the edema, erythema, and bleeding of periodontal disease. Using a manual syringe or a power irrigator on low are equally effective in home care.
