ARESTIN® Treatment Gainesville FL - Smart Smile Dentistry

How can ARESTIN® help with periodontal disease?

While periodontal disease is incurable, it is possible to manage the condition and prevent it from progressing with diligent oral health care. This management includes seeing your dentist in Gainesville, Florida for periodontal disease maintenance appointments every few months. While frequent scaling and root planing can help rid your periodontal pockets of irritating bacteria, these germs constantly form in the mouth, and that is why we offer ARESTIN® for an extra layer of protection.

What is ARESTIN®?

ARESTIN® is an antibiotic that is placed in the pockets between your gums and teeth after a scaling and root planing procedure is performed. This medication contains tiny particles that slowly release the antibiotic minocycline hydrochloride around the tooth roots. Placing the medication at the site of the infection is far more effective than taking an oral antibiotic.

The time-release formula can work for up to 21 days, giving your gum tissues a greater chance to heal than with deep cleaning alone.

The one-two punch of deep cleaning and ARESTIN® not only helps keep bacteria at bay but has also been proven to reduce the size of periodontal pockets.

While most patients tolerate this antibiotic therapy well, not everyone is a good candidate. Our Gainesville, FL dentist can determine if ARESTIN® would be a beneficial component of your ongoing periodontal disease treatment plan.

Contact Smart Smile Dentistry in Gainesville.
