You must have heard about gum diseases, also known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is very common. Everyone has some bacteria in their mouth that can cause gum disease. With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, you can keep gum disease at bay. As the initial symptoms of gum disease are very mild, many people do not pay any attention to them until they turn serious. It is a chronic bacterial infection that can affect your gums. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious issues that require expensive and painful surgeries.

Along with root planing and scaling, Arestin is used to treat moderate to severe periodontal disease. Arestin is a powder form of the antibiotic, Minocycline, a derivative of tetracycline that is placed into a deep pocket after scaling and root planing. It can help your body to heal the deep pocket and allow reattachment of the collagen fibers of the gum to the tooth.
