Treating periodontal disease with Arestin

When patients have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, they may be unsure about the best gum infection treatment available to them. For those with later-stage gum disease, treatment with scaling and root planing and Arestin antibiotics will often help restore health and beauty to the smile. Drs. Mircea Mitu and George D’Louhy of Family Dental Center of Manteca, California, can provide periodontal services for patients who have been diagnosed with this infection. Arestin is one of many tools used to do so.

What is Arestin?

Arestin is an antibiotic that is used for the treatment of periodontal disease. It is a powder that is placed in the pockets of the gums. Arestin helps kill the bacteria that cause periodontal disease and is often used after scaling and root planing to bring the patient’s smile back to health after this condition has developed. It is a treatment that can ensure patients can restore their smile to health after periodontal disease has been diagnosed.

Why should I treat my gum infection with Arestin?

Arestin is a periodontal pockets treatment that can help to kill the bacteria that cause gum infection and inflammation. If left untreated, these bacteria can cause further damage to the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Arestin can help stop this progression and restore the health of the gums. In addition, Arestin may also have other benefits that patients might not realize, including reducing bad breath caused by the bacteria in the mouth. Our team finds that by integrating Arestin into scaling and root planing treatments, patients can restore their smiles faster than without antibiotic use.
