Arestin™: Enhancing Periodontal Treatment for Optimal Oral Health
At Westchester Smile Design, we are committed to providing our patients with the most advanced and effective treatment options available. When it comes to managing periodontal disease, we utilize a groundbreaking solution called Arestin™. This innovative antibiotic therapy has transformed the way we approach gum disease treatment, offering improved outcomes and enhanced oral health for our valued patients. In this article, we will delve into the benefits of Arestin™ and how it contributes to our comprehensive periodontal care.
Understanding Periodontal Disease: Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, affects millions of individuals worldwide. It is a chronic condition caused by bacterial infection and inflammation of the gums and supporting structures. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and may contribute to systemic health issues such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Effective management of periodontal disease is crucial for maintaining optimal oral health.
Introducing Arestin™: Arestin™ is a locally administered antibiotic therapy designed specifically for the treatment of periodontal disease. It contains minocycline, a powerful antibiotic that targets and eliminates the bacteria responsible for gum infections. Unlike systemic antibiotics, which are ingested orally, Arestin™ is applied directly to the infected periodontal pockets during a non-surgical periodontal therapy session.
How Arestin™ Works: After a thorough scaling and root planing procedure, our skilled periodontal specialists gently place Arestin™ in the periodontal pockets. The gel-like formulation adheres to the gum tissue, releasing minocycline over time. This sustained release of antibiotics effectively fights the bacteria present in the periodontal pockets, helping to reduce inflammation, control infection, and promote the healing process.
The Benefits of Arestin™:
- Targeted Treatment: Arestin™ delivers antibiotics directly to the infected areas, providing precise and localized therapy to combat periodontal bacteria. This targeted approach enhances the effectiveness of treatment.
- Enhanced Healing: By eliminating bacteria and reducing inflammation, Arestin™ aids in the healing of the gums, allowing them to reattach to the tooth surfaces and regain their health and stability.
- Minimally Invasive: Arestin™ is a non-surgical treatment option, making it a preferred choice for patients seeking a conservative approach to managing periodontal disease. It is minimally invasive, requiring no incisions or sutures.
- Convenience: The application of Arestin™ is quick and painless, with no additional appointments needed. This makes it a convenient option for patients with busy schedules.
- Improved Outcomes: Clinical studies have shown that the use of Arestin™ in conjunction with scaling and root planing significantly improves periodontal health outcomes. It promotes the reduction of pocket depth, decreases bleeding, and enhances overall oral health.
