ARESTIN: FIGHTING INFECTION WHERE IT STARTS
You might have come across gum disease, also referred to as “periodontitis” or “periodontal disease.” Perhaps a dental expert or hygienist recently informed you about this infection.
However, do you truly understand the distinction between periodontal disease and other mouth-related issues like gingivitis?
Are you aware of why it’s crucial to address periodontal disease and why relying solely on brushing and flossing won’t suffice? Most notably, were you aware that periodontal disease is currently the major cause of tooth loss among American adults? Additionally, while a definitive link between periodontal disease and increased risk for systemic events has not been established, recent data indicates a potential association between periodontal disease and other health concerns like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and preterm low birth-weight babies.
Fight infection right where it starts ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg, is a highly effective antibiotic treatment available in powder form. This powder is applied directly into infected periodontal pockets just after the dental professional completes the scaling and root planing (SRP) procedure.
