Gum disease is one of the most common oral health conditions in America. You may notice your gums getting red and swollen or bleeding in your gums when you brush your teeth. If this is the case, it’s critical to seek periodontal treatment. Periodontal treatment addresses the causes of gum disease and ensures that your gums return to their normal, healthy state. One of the treatments we offer at Wambaugh Dental is Arestin. This antibiotic can address the root cause of periodontal disease, ensuring your oral health for years to come. If you are interested in how Arestin and other periodontal treatment options can help you and your family, reach out to Wambaugh Dental today at 844.508.1034.
What is Arestin?
Arestin is a topical antibiotic for gum disease that treats the bacteria that cause periodontal disease in the first place. Along with scaling and root planing treatment, Arestin can assist in preventing your periodontal disease from getting worse and allow you to have a healthy mouth for years to come.
Arestin is a powder composed of hundreds of thousands of tiny microspheres that release antibiotics over time. After a deep periodontal cleaning, scaling, and root planing, your periodontist will add Arestin to the pocket between your gum and tooth. Completely painless, the Arestin powder will dissolve on its own but will continue working long after your visit is over.
