Prescription Medication to Fight Against Gum Disease. Why Would You Deny Yourself the Benefits?
Fight infection right where it starts.
ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg is an effective antibiotic treatment that comes in powder form. This powder is placed inside infected periodontal pockets just after the dental professional finishes the scaling and root planing (SRP) procedure.
ARESTIN® with SRP is nearly 3x more likely to result in successful treatment than SRP alone. Your dental professional places ARESTIN® in infected gum pockets below your gumline. This may happen at the time of SRP or on a follow-up visit. You may also receive ARESTIN®during routine periodontal maintenance.
Getting treatment is painless.
Your dental professional will place these microspheres into infected areas after completing your SRP. Getting ARESTIN® is painless. It will dissolve on its own, so no removal is required. ARESTIN ® is different from antibiotic pills.
ARESTIN ® is different from an antibiotic you take as a pill, because it’s placed right where you need it. A pill can’t give you the level of antibiotic concentration in your gums that this treatment can.
