ARESTIN Antibiotic Therapy

Animation of healthy and damaged gumsWhen it comes to combating a dangerous infection like periodontal disease, your smile can use all the help it can get. That’s why our dentists here at Dlight Dental often recommend using ARESTIN antibiotics in addition to other common periodontal therapy options. ARESTIN is applied directly to the gum pockets in powder form, and it will start killing any remaining bacteria that still live there. In fact, this medication can continue to fight infections for up to 21 days following its application. If you’re suffering from bleeding gums, swollen oral tissue, or other common signs of periodontal disease, please contact one of our locations today for further assistance.
