Abstract: Systemic antimicrobials have been used as an adjunctive therapy for the treatment of periodontitis. Nevertheless, it is unclear whether the use of antimicrobials may improve tooth survival in patients with periodontitis. The main objective of this overview of systematic reviews (SRs) with meta-analyses was to assess the evidence supporting systemic antimicrobials for improving tooth survival in patients suffering from periodontitis. Information on adverse events was also extracted from SRs.
