Drs. Param and Lavanya Gill can get rid of the high bacteria levels that result from gum disease when we provide the ARESTIN® antibiotic treatment. Our dentist will apply this medication directly to your infected gum tissue in order to help it heal. Contact the Monte Vista Dental office if you would like to receive ARESTIN in Turlock, California.
Many changes occur in your mouth as a result of gum disease, and one of these changes is an increase in bacteria production. These bacteria make it more difficult for your mouth to heal, and they can even spread throughout the body, causing problems with the heart and lungs. In order to reduce the high levels of bacteria that result from gum disease, we may recommend the ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
ARESTIN is a minocycline hydrochloride that comes in tiny microspheres. We often use ARESTIN in conjunction with a scaling and root planing procedure in order to improve the effectiveness of this treatment. After the scaling and root planing is completed, we will place the ARESTIN medication in your periodontal pockets. It slowly releases antibiotics directly to the infected gum tissues. The ARESTIN eventually dissolves on its own after getting rid of bacteria and reducing the size of periodontal pockets. Call our office today if you would like to benefit from ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
