The Periodontal Adjunctive Antibiotics Study (PAAS) Is Recruiting Oral Health Providers

The Periodontal Adjunctive Antibiotics Study (PAAS) is recruiting oral health providers

The PAAS study will evaluate the effectiveness of adjunctive antibiotics in the treatment of periodontal disease. Antibiotic stewardship calls for optimizing antibiotic prescribing to effectively treat infections, and to reduce antibiotic misuse to prevent the development of antibiotic-resistant microbial strains. The ADA expert panel recommendation for antibiotics as adjunctive therapies to SRP was considered of weak strength and suggested that larger pragmatic clinical trials would benefit dental professionals in their clinical decision making.
