Arestin


 

Arestin is being used successfully at Tala Dental to aid in the treatment of periodontal disease. 

Your gums are an important foundation for your teeth and they provide stability for all of your dental work - so it's important to keep them healthy. In periodontal disease, a chronic bacterial infection is present. This silent infection occurs when harmful bacteria travel beneath the gum line and create "pockets" or gaps in the gums around the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal bacteria can lead to bone and tooth loss that threatens your foundation. 

The good news is that there are effective treatments available for periodontal disease. At Tala Dental, we choose treatments for your infection and are dedicated to helping you fight periodontal disease. You may be treated with scaling and root planning, a common deep-cleaning procedure. 

Arestin is a small amount of antibiotic powder that is easily placed into the pocket by a dental professional and releases over 14 days. Arestin placed directly into the pocket reaches the location where harmful bacteria live. Clinical studies show that Arestin and scaling and root planing are more effective at shrinking the size of infected periodontal pockets than scaling and root planing alone.
