When you have periodontal disease, then your gum tissue becomes inflamed and infected. The level of harmful bacteria in your mouth grows and can even spread to the rest of the body, increasing your risk for cardiovascular diseases and respiratory infections. The high levels of bacteria also make healing from gum disease more difficult.
To fight the bacteria in your mouth, we use the ARESTIN antibiotic treatment. We place the microspheres of minocycline hydrochloride in your periodontal pockets after performing a scaling and root planing procedure. The medication is slowly released over time, delivering antibiotics directly to the gum tissue. By fighting infection, ARESTIN improves the effectiveness of scaling and root planing, helping to reduce the size of periodontal pockets. Call us today if you want to learn more about the benefits of the ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
