Smile Cape Coral uses Arestin to treat gum disease in patients for whom this product is appropriate. Coupled with scaling and root planing treatment, Arestin can assist in preventing your periodontal disease from progressing and allow you to have a healthy mouth for years to come.
Arestin is a topical antibiotic that treats the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Arestin comes in a powder form. This powder is composed of hundreds of thousands of tiny microspheres that release antibiotics over time.
After a deep periodontal cleaning, scaling, and root planing, Arestin is added to the pocket between your gum and tooth. Arestin treatment is painless. The Arestin powder dissolves on its own but will continue working long after your visit is over.
