The gums provide critical support for the teeth and offer a foundation along with the jawbone to ensure a healthy smile. However, when Brandon, Florida area patients present with a chronic bacterial infection such as periodontal disease, they need to seek solutions with a dentist to keep bacteria from entering into the gaps between the teeth and gums. Without effective treatment, such as Arestin medication, patients may experience bone loss, gum loss, and even tooth loss! Dr. Trevor Williams and his team at Williams Family and Cosmetic Dentistry often suggest professional periodontitis treatment such as the Arestin medication to control the infection and bring the smile back to health.
What is Arestin?
Arestin is a medication that is used in treating periodontal disease. It is an antibiotic that is placed into the pockets that often form between the teeth and gums where bacteria tends to reside. Arestin antibiotics will release medication slowly over the course of two weeks in the pocket area, attacking harmful bacteria right where it forms. When Arestin medication is used in conjunction with periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing, patients can substantially reduce the infection in the smile and start their journey towards healthier teeth and gums!
What are the benefits of Arestin treatment?
Dr. Trevor Williams and his team find that Arestin treatment has many advantages that make it a great choice for any patient dealing with periodontal disease. Arestin:
- Does not require needles
- Works directly where the problem is
- Offers an antibiotic that works for weeks
- Fights bacteria better than deep cleaning alone
- Is affordable and sometimes covered by dental insurance plans
- Provides a comfortable yet effective treatment for late-stage periodontal disease
