The emerging antibiotic resistance towards antibiotics among human pathogens dictates a restrictive and conservative use of systemic antibiotics in periodontics. One should keep in mind that overuse, misuse and poor compliance to an antimicrobial therapy are major risk factors for antibiotic resistance development in bacteria and other micro-organisms.
