Eliminating the bacteria that cause Gum Disease
Arestin is a prescription antibiotic used to help eliminate bacteria that has collected in gum pockets and can’t be easily reached. After scaling and planing, Arestin is placed directly in the deeper pockets. Over a period of days, the antibiotic dissolves and kills the bacteria collected in the pocket.
Treating severe Gum Disease
When plaque has been building up too long without any treatment, the threat to your teeth is much more acute. It can destroy bone that holds the teeth as well as surrounding soft tissue. Severe gum disease is also associated with other health issues, such as heart disease, strokes and more.
