ABSTRACT:
The aim of this present case series is to show the treatment effect of the biofilm decontamination approach on acute periodontal abscesses in patients on periodontal maintenance therapy. Five clinical cases showing acute periodontal abscess were treated using an oral tissue decontaminant material (HYBENX® gel) that contains a concentrated aqueous mixture of hydroxybenzenesulfonic and hydroxymethoxybenzene acids and sulfuric acid. The material was administered deep into the pocket on the root surface and left in the site for 30 seconds. No anesthesia was used and instrumentation was not performed before the treatment. All of the treated cases healed well and rapidly and 6months post-operatively showed a significant reduction in probing depths, no bleeding on probing and minimal tissue recession.
Conclusion: From the present cases it can be concluded that this novel approach of Biofilm Decontamination using HYBENX® gel seems to be a very promising technique for the treatment of acute periodontal abscess, having an added advantage of avoiding the use of any systemic or local antibiotics.
