ARESTIN

Although scaling and root planing (SRP) is effective at reducing plaque and some bacteria, it doesn't kill all of the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. SRP is a mechanical procedure and the instruments used to perform SRP cannot always reach the bacteria that reside at the bottom of deep or difficult-to-reach periodontal pockets. For these pockets, dental professionals often add a locally administered antibiotic (LAA) such as ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1mg to the SRP procedure.

This comprehensive approach provides patients with two therapies that work simultaneously (ARESTIN® + SRP) to help kill the harmful bacteria that cause periodontal disease-so that the infection becomes more easily managed and won't immediately return.

Infected areas in your gums

Infected pockets inside your gums require treatment before periodontal disease causes further damage. ARESTIN® is indicated as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) procedures for reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. ARESTIN® may be used as part of a periodontal maintenance program which includes good oral hygiene, and SRP.

What It Is

ARESTIN® is an effective antibiotic treatment that comes in powder form. This powder is easily placed inside infected periodontal pockets just after the dental professional finishes the scaling and root planing (SRP) procedure.

How It Works

ARESTIN® contains "Microspheres"-tiny, bead-like particles that are smaller than grains of sand and are not visible to the eye. The Microspheres are filled with the antibiotic minocycline, and they release the drug over time into the infected periodontal pocket, killing bacteria that live there for up to 21 days.

Proven Results

ARESTIN® Microspheres continue to fight the infection for up to 21 days after SRP. In clinical studies, ARESTIN® has been proven to be more effective than using SRP alone. ARESTIN® also significantly reduced the size of periodontal pockets compared to SRP alone, killed the bacteria most commonly associated with periodontal disease, and reduced bleeding on probing of the gums.
