Periodontal Pocket Reduction with Arestin

Arestin® is a locally administered antibiotic that is composed of thousands of powder-like microspheres that release antibiotics over a period of time.  Because gum disease is a bacterial infection, we may recommend placing Arestin® in the gum pockets after scaling and root planing and/or during your periodontal maintenance appointments to help fight the disease.
