ARESTIN® makes Scaling and Root Planing (SRP)
more effective

Confront Your Gum Disease with an Antibiotic Treatment –

If you have periodontal (gum) disease, SRP is needed to help improve the health of your teeth and gums. Bacteria are the cause of gum disease. That’s why Dr. Derhalli may recommend ARESTIN®. It is an antibiotic that helps kill bacteria at the root of the problem.

ARESTIN® with SRP is more effective than SRP alone.

Your dentist places ARESTIN® in the 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 (SPT).

Getting Treatment is Easy –

Our Periodontal Hygienist will place these microspheres into infected areas after completing SRP. ARESTIN® 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 ARESTIN® can.

Microspheres release antibiotics over time ARESTIN® contains microspheres—tiny particles—that are smaller than grains of sand and are not visible to the eye. The microspheres are filled with the antibiotic Minocycline Hydrochloride. These microspheres release the antibiotic over time, killing bacteria so your gums can heal better than with SRP alone.
