Fight Bacteria with ARESTIN®

Left untreated, gum disease (periodontal gum disease) can lead to further disease progression. Root planing and scaling is more effective with ARESTIN®, a tetracycline antibiotic to treat periodontal (gum) disease. Bacterial infection is the cause of periodontal disease, the number one cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Taglia Advanced Dentistry, located in Elmwood Park, recommends ARESTIN®! It's an antibiotic that aids in killing bacteria at the root of the problem. Periodontal (gum) disease if left untreated, may lead to more serious problems that may require painful and expensive surgery.

Taglia Advanced Dentistry (aka TAD) locally administers the ARESTIN® antibiotic in the pockets below your gum line. This may either take place at the time of scaling and root planning, or on a follow-up visit. Also you may receive ARESTIN® during a routine periodontal maintenance session.

ARESTIN® treatment is extremely easy. TAD will administer these microspheres into infected area after completing scaling and root planning. ARESTIN® will dissolve on its own, so no removal is required.

ARESTIN® is vastly superior over an antibiotic taken as an oral pill, because it's administered right where you need it. An oral (pill) antibiotic can't give you the level of precise concentration in your gums that ARESTIN® can.

How Exactly Does ARESTIN® Work?

It contains microspheres, which are tiny microscopic particles that are smaller than grains of sand and are not visible to the naked eye. Microspheres are filled with the antibiotic minocycline hydrochloride. The microspheres release the antibiotic over time, killing bacteria so your gums can heal better, faster and more efficiently than with scaling and root planning by alone.

ARESTIN® is only available as a prescription antibiotic and is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). ARESTIN® is used in conjunction with scaling and root planing and is placed by Taglia Advanced Dentistry for the treatment of moderate to severe gum (periodontal) disease.
