Antibiotic Therapy

Arestin


APPOINTMENT REQUEST





Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gumline.

ARESTIN (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that cause the infection.

  • It’s placed directly in the infected areas or “pockets” in your gums.
  • It’s applied right after scaling and root planing, the dental procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line where brushing and flossing can’t reach.

ARESTIN starts working quickly, right at the source of infection and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. 1,2

ARESTIN fights infection and inflammation for 30 days,2 and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planning alone for up to 90 days.3
