Treat Your Periodontal Disease with Arestin

Gum disease is caused by a bacterial infection of the teeth and gums. It can result in bleeding, receding gums, and sensitivity. Plus, it's the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the US.

Arestin® is an antibiotic that is added to scaling and root planing. It is nearly three times more likely to result in successful treatment than scaling and root planing alone.

Dr. Xu will place Arestin® in the infected gum pockets below your gumline, which is painless. Arestin® will dissolve, so no removal needed, and it is more effective than a pill because it is placed right where you need it to be: at the spot on gum disease.
