Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can cause serious damage to your oral health. More severe stages of the disease can often cause tooth loss and bone deterioration. Gum disease has also been linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and several other serious medical conditions. If you have gum disease, our dentist can provide you with Arestin® to help restore your oral health.
Arestin is designed to kill off the bacteria which infest portions of your gums and mouth and cause the infection that leads to gum disease. When our dentist provides your antibiotic treatment, he will begin by performing a scaling and root planing to remove plaque from below your gum lines, and will then place the medication directly into the infected pockets of your gums. Arestin will actively fight the infection and inflammation in your gums for 30 days following placement. You should see a significant improvement in the condition of your gums within 90 days.
