Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gum line. ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills.

  • It’s placed directly in the infected areas—or “pockets”—in your gums.
  • It’s applied right after scaling and root planing, the type of cleaning that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line—where brushing and flossing can’t reach.

ARESTIN® starts working quickly, and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. 1,2 ARESTIN® fights infection and inflammation for 30 days,2 and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planing alone for up to 90 days.3
