Our dentists and team can help to lower the levels of bacteria associated with gum disease when we perform ARESTIN® antibiotic treatment. After a scaling and root planing treatment, Dr. Wu will provide this medication so it can help you heal. Contact our New Smile Dentistry team if you want to learn more about ARESTIN in Richardson, Texas.
Gum disease is a bacterial infection, and the worse it gets, the higher the bacteria levels. These bacteria can prevent your mouth from healing, and they can even spread throughout the body and increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, and other problems. However, we can lower the amount of bacteria and help heal your mouth when we provide the ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
We use ARESTIN in conjunction with a scaling and root planing procedure in order to improve the effectiveness of this treatment. ARESTIN is the antibiotic minocycline hydrochloride, which we will place in periodontal pockets in the form of microspheres. The medication slowly releases directly to your gum tissue in order to lower the bacteria count and fight gum disease.
