Periodontal disease is a serious infection under the gumline.

ARESTIN (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection.

  • Arestin is placed directly in the infected area orareas when necessary, usually in pockets with measurments (depth) of 5mm or more.
  • Arestin is applied following scaling and root planing (deep cleaning).

ARESTIN starts working quickly, right at the source of infection, and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office.
