Periodontal disease, or gum disease, can severely damage your oral health. Gum disease often causes tooth loss and deterioration of bone structure, and it is known to be linked to heart disease. One of the treatments available for gum disease is Arestin, an antibiotic treatment provided by dentists.

Arestin is designed to kill the bacteria that cause infection and infest portions of your gums and mouth. When you receive an Arestin antibiotic treatment, our dentist will place the medicine directly into the infected pockets of your gums. This is usually done after removing plaque from below your gum line with a scaling and root planing treatment. For the 30 days following placement, Arestin fights infection and inflammation within your gums. Within 90 days, you should see significant improvement in the condition of your gums.
