Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums that can result in gum recession, tooth loss, and bone deterioration. It is important to treat periodontal disease as soon as possible to control the spread of infection and prevent further harm to the teeth and gums. Merrill Dental can help you fight infection right where it starts with ARESTIN®.
ARESTIN is a highly effective antibiotic in a powder form. Our dentists place this powder in the gum pockets created by periodontal disease following a scaling and root planing procedure. ARESTIN remains active in the pockets for a long time, targeting bacterial infection and reducing pocket depth, and can treat chronic periodontitis better than scaling and root planing alone. This quick, painless procedure is a highly efficient out-of-office treatment for patients to help them control periodontal disease between visits to Merrill Dental.
When receiving ARESTIN, you will not need any bandages or stitches, and the powder does not need to be removed by our dentists during a follow-up visit. ARESTIN can prevent the need for extensive gum surgery by controlling periodontal infection, saving you money and hassle.

Our dentists will gladly assess your oral health and help you create a treatment plan to address your periodontal condition so that you can enjoy a health smile.
