Periostat: Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment

Periostat is a 20mg tablet form of doxycycline hyclate (form of tetracycline) and is reported to function as an oral enzyme-suppressing agent for slowing the progression of the disease process.

The medication counteracts the enzymes created by our own bodies to fight severe gum disease, which have been shown to be a causal factor in tooth and tissue loss. Recommended to be used with Scaling and Root Planing (SRP) for best results.
