Periodontal Disease and the use of Arestin to kill bacteria.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gumline.

ARESTIN (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection. It’s placed directly in the infected areasor “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 linewhere 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.
