Arestin: Fighting infection where it starts
Arestin is used either alone or in conjunction with scaling and root planing to improve the health of your teeth and gums.
Have you been told by your dental healthcare provider that you have gum disease (Periodontal disease)? What that means is that bacteria below your gumline have started to destroy the structure that holds the teeth into the jaw. Periodontal disease has several stages of progression before it could cause tooth loss. Arestin is one of our defenses to combat the progression of the disease and stop it in its tracks. While gum disease is not reversible it is important to stop the infection from further destruction
Do you really know the difference between periodontal disease and other types of complications that can affect your mouth, such as gingivitis?
Do you know why it's so important to treat periodontal disease-and why brushing and flossing alone won't do the trick? Set up an appointment with one of our excellent hygienists to find out why.
Most importantly, did you know that periodontal disease is today's #1 cause of tooth loss among American adults? Or that recent data suggest a possible association between periodontal disease and other health issues including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and preterm low birth-weight babies?
