At Woodland Park Dentistry we pride ourselves on using only the most cutting edge techniques and procedures to make sure that our patients have the healthiest smiles possible. One of these revolutionary treatments is the use of Arestin® to treat and prevent gum disease. Arestin® is an antibiotic that works its way between the gum and the tooth to kill the harmful bacteria that cause periodontal gum disease.
While traditional antibiotics are taken orally and dissolve into the bloodstream from the stomach, Arestin® microspheres are applied directly to the site of the inflammation. Once between the tooth and gum, the microspheres begin a slow release of the antibiotic, healing your gums over time. This allows for a higher concentration of antibiotics going to the place in your body that needs it, without having to take more antibiotics in general.
If are interested in finding out more about the Arestin® technology, or to schedule an appointment for a variety of other dental problems call us today.
