McKinney ARESTIN Dental Care
What Is ARESTIN?
ARESTIN is a medication that is used to treat gum disease. It is a powder that is put into the spaces between the teeth and gums. It works by killing bacteria that typically causes gum disease. ARESTIN is often used in combination with other treatments, such as scaling and root planing.
It also helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the gums. ARESTIN is a safe and effective way to treat periodontitis, and it can help to improve the overall health of the teeth and gums. Apollo Dental is proud to offer this treatment to their patients.
How Does ARESTIN Help with Periodontal Problems?
ARESTIN is a prescription antimicrobial that is placed in deep gum pockets after a dental cleaning. Once inside the pocket, ARESTIN provides continuous release of antibiotics for up to three weeks. The slow release of antibiotics helps reduce the size of the pocket and promote healing. ARESTIN is one part of a comprehensive dental treatment plan that also includes regular cleanings and good oral hygiene.
In most cases, dentists will recommend that patients return for a follow-up visit after four to six weeks to assess the progress of their treatment. If the pocket has not reduced in size, an additional course of ARESTIN may be recommended. ARESTIN is a safe and effective way to treat periodontal disease and promote healing.
It can help reduce the need for more invasive treatments, such as surgery, and it is well tolerated by most patients.
How Gum Disease Occurs
Gum disease is often caused by plaque build-up on the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria on the teeth and gums, and it can be difficult to remove with brushing alone. If you don't remove plaque, it can harden into tartar, which provides an ideal surface for bacteria to grow. Over time, tartar can lead to inflammation of the gums, a condition known as gingivitis.
Gingivitis can progress to periodontitis if untreated, a more serious form of gum disease that can damage the bones and tissues that support the teeth. Fortunately, gum disease is preventable with good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
Regular dental check-ups are also important in order to identify early signs of gum disease and begin treatment before the condition worsens. By taking these steps, you can help to keep your mouth healthy and free from gum disease.
