Localized Antibiotic Treatment

Periodontal disease is a progressive condition which leads to severe inflammation and tooth loss if left untreated.  Antibiotic treatments can be used in combination with scaling and root planning, curettage, surgery or as a stand-alone treatment to help reduce bacteria before and/or after many common periodontal procedures.

  • Arestin® – This Minocycline antibiotic comes in mini capsules which are delivered into the gums after scaling and root planning. Your dentist will incorporate and recommend antibiotic treatments if necessary for the healing of your periodontal condition.

If you have any questions about periodontal disease or antibiotic treatments, please ask your dentist.
