    I haven't had the antibacterial medicine, matter of fact, I haven't been able to proceed with my perio care because I have no insurance and I have to pay cash and I'm quite poor.

    But, when I was able to save and pay for dentistry two years ago, I paid for all my fillings and the dental students used me for their root scaling and planing final exam which enabled me to get it done for free.

    Since I had that cleaning done, my mouth tastes different and is 100% cleaner. I know I have to follow up but the bacteria that was removed from my mouth slowed down the deterioration of my gums. My pockets were only 3s and 4s which aren't good but they haven't gotten any worse. The treatment you write about here would be perfect for someone poor like me.

    It's understandable that the planing alone wouldn't be enough. This is great news, actually, especially if the pills are only $15.
