Periodontal disease is a serious and common infection that affects the gum line and can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. The condition is caused by harmful bacteria that thrive in the pockets between the teeth and gums, where regular brushing and flossing cannot reach.
ARESTIN® is an antibiotic treatment specifically designed to target these harmful bacteria. This treatment is applied directly to the infected areas in the gums, following the scaling and root planing procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria under the gum line.
The benefit of ARESTIN® is that it starts working immediately at the source of infection and continues to fight bacteria for up to 30 days, reducing inflammation and promoting healing. Clinical studies have demonstrated that ARESTIN® provides significantly better results than scaling and root planing alone for up to 90 days, making it a highly effective option for treating periodontal disease.
By using ARESTIN®, dental professionals can help patients manage the symptoms of periodontal disease and prevent further damage to their oral health.
