Thanks for consulting Healthcaremagic.
This is Dr.Priyanka tiwari answering your query.

I have read your query and understand your concern. As far as periodontal infection is concerned frequently used periodontal combination antibiotic therapies are metronidazole-amoxicillin (250-375 mg of each 3 x daily for 8 days) and metronidazole-ciprofloxacin (500 mg of each 2 x daily for 8 days).
Yes, you can take ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for periodontal infection by consulting with local doctor.

Hope this will help you.
If you have further query i will be happy to help.
