Arestin: Fighting infection where it starts

You may have heard of gum disease, "periodontitis," or "periodontal disease," but do you know the difference between a disease, infection or other type of complication that can affect your mouth, such as gingivitis?

Do you know why it's so important to treat periodontal disease- and why brushing and flossing alone won't do the trick?

Most importantly, did you know that periodontal disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss among American adults? Or that, although a causal relationship between periodontal disease and an elevated risk for systemic events has not yet been proven, recent data suggest a possible link between periodontal disease and other health issues including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and preterm low birth-weight babies.

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 after your dental professional finishes the scaling and root planing (SRP) procedure. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to further health problems. Let ARESTIN® heal the area for you.
