Arestin® is a major advance in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is a prescription antibiotic gel that is placed gently into your gum pockets where bacteria thrive after you have received scaling and root planing treatments. Arestin® uses microspheres, small spherical particles in the gel, to slowly release the antibiotic into the infected area for many days.

Treatment only takes a few minutes to administer and is a comfortable treatment that does not require anesthesia. The benefits you'll receive from one simple treatment can help you achieve better gum health. The use of Arestin® has been proven to be three times more successful than scaling and root planing alone.
