Mixing Metronidazole Solution in Grafting Material?

Last Updated February 11, 2008

Dr. W. asks:
I attended an excellent lecture where the speaker described how he customarily mixes Metronidazole 0.5% solution in grafting material when he does sinus lifts. I was wondering if this is a widespread practice in the rest of the dental implant community? He also recommended this protocol for socket preservation in a previously infected area when he uses allografts. Could someone inform me what the protocol for addition of which antibiotic and in what dosage does one incorporates with allografts in cases like this?
