Prescription of Systemic Antibiotics by Periodontists a Multi-National Survey
You are invited to participate in a multi-national survey investigating the prescription of systemic antibiotics by periodontal specialists. With the knowledge and experiences you have acquired through your training and specialist practice, you represent an important pool of participants who are able to contribute to furthering our understanding in the prescription of systemic antibiotics by the periodontal specialty.
During the past three decades, dental practitioners have embraced the use of systemic antibiotics in treating periodontal diseases due to their ability to reach microorganisms unable to be accessed by mechanical therapy. The use of systemic antibiotics as adjuncts has been shown to improve clinic parameters when treating periodontal diseases. Furthermore, systemic antibiotics have been used as prophylaxis to minimize post-operative infections and improve clinical outcomes. The aim of this present study is therefore to examine the trends and perceptions in prescribing systemic antibiotics for the treatment of periodontal and peri-implant diseases by periodontists around the world. Secondly, the survey hopes to evaluate the factors, which may affect the prescription of systemic antibiotics globally.
Participants will be requested to fill out a short online survey. The information acquired will assist in our study to assess the pattern of systemic antibiotic prescription by the periodontal profession multi-nationally. This study is carried out by postgraduate dental students at the University of Western Australia.
