Arestin is a topical antibiotic that treats the bacteria that cause gum disease. It is made up of a powder with thousands of tiny microspheres. They are tiny, bead-like particles are smaller than grains of sand and invisible to the naked eye. They release antibiotics over long periods of time into the pockets where bacteria breed, helping your gums heal.
If you’ve been diagnosed with periodontitis (advanced gum disease), our doctors may recommend Arestin in your treatment. Gum disease is caused by microbial plaque that colonize on the your tooth’s surface and below the gumline. This bacteria breaks down the tissue and even the bone supporting your teeth.
If left untreated, your gums can become enflamed and the tissues and bone that hold your teeth up can begin to deteriorate. Infected gums can pull away from the teeth, creating pockets that become a breeding ground for more bacteria. Our doctors would use Arestin to help fight gum disease after a periodontal procedure. This is also known as scaling and root planing, a nonsurgical procedure where our doctors would deep clean above and below your gumline to remove plaque that has built up on your teeth.
If you’ve been fighting against gum disease, Arestin could be the solution you’ve been searching for. Our doctors and staff can work together to improve the health of your teeth and gums. To schedule a consultation, or if you have any questions regarding scaling and root planing or Arestin; give us a call at (212) 422-9229 or send us a email.
