Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can be devastating to your oral health. Fortunately, many treatments are available to treat gum disease. One of these treatments is Arestin. Arestin is an antibiotic designed to kill the bacteria that cause infection leading to gum disease.
Arestin is placed directly into the infected areas, or pockets, of your gums immediately following a scaling and root planing treatment. Scaling and root planing removed disease-causing plaque from below your gum line where brushing and flossing cannot reach, allowing your Arestin treatment to begin working immediately at the source of the infection. Arestin fights infection and inflammation in your gums for 30 days, long after you have left your dentist’s office. Within 90 days, it will provide much better results than scaling and root planing alone.
If you have any questions or concerns about Arestin, we invite you to contact our office to speak with one of our dentists or team members, and to schedule your appointment at our office.
