Arestin: Fighting infection where it starts
You may have heard about gum disease, also known “periodontal disease.”
But do you really know the difference between periodontal disease and other types of complications that can affect your mouth?
Do you know why it’s so important to treat periodontal disease-and why brushing and flossing alone won’t do the trick?
Did you know that periodontal disease is today’s #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 been established, recent data suggest a possible association between periodontal disease and other health issues including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and preterm low birth-weight babies?
ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg is an effective antibiotic treatment that comes in powder form. This powder is placed inside infected periodontal pockets just after the dental professional finishes the scaling and root planing (SRP) procedure.
