Gum disease can be severely damaging to your oral health when left untreated, even causing tooth loss and bone deterioration. Periodontal disease has also been linked to other serious medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, our dentist may recommend Arestin anti-microbial therapy to help eliminate gum disease and restore the health of your gums.
Arestin is an antibiotic designed to kill the bacteria that infect your gums and mouth and cause periodontal disease. Our dentist will begin your treatment by providing you with a scaling and root planing treatment. This removes plaque from below the gum lines, and makes it easier for Arestin to work effectively. The medication is then placed directly into the infected pockets of your gums. For 30 days following placement, Arestin actively fights the infection and inflammation in your mouth. Within 90 days, you should see significant improvement in your gums.
We invite you to contact our office today for more information about Arestin and to schedule a consultation with our caring dentist.
