Chicago Arestin Treatment in Lakeview & South Loop

Art of Modern Dentistry utilizes Arestin as part of the process to treat periodontal disease in their patients.

Your gums are critical to support your teeth and provide a stable foundation for any dental work you have done, which is why it’s essential to keep them healthy. When you have a chronic bacterial infection known as periodontal disease, the harmful bacteria travels into the pockets and gaps between your teeth and gums. If you don’t seek treatment, such as through Arestin, you could experience bone and tooth loss as well, threatening the foundation you need.

The good news is you don’t have to suffer from periodontal disease. When you visit Art of Modern Dentistry, we will determine which treatment will help you fight the issue and restore a healthier mouth. Some of the treatments we may recommend include Arestin, scaling and root planing, which deep cleans the teeth and gums.

Arestin consists of an antibiotic powder that can be placed into the pocket between the teeth and gums. The medication slowly releases over the course of 14 days. Through the pocket area, the antibiotic is able to attack the harmful bacteria at its source. Clinical studies performed on Arestin showed the antibiotic when paired with scaling and root planing, substantially reduced the size of these infected pockets.

Key Facts/Benefits

If you have periodontal disease, there is a chronic bacterial infection present in your mouth. Without treatment for gum disease, serious health and financial consequences can occur. Art of Modern Dentistry successfully utilizes Arestin, clinically proven to be the most effective method of treatment for periodontal bacterial infection. Arestin, in combination with scaling and root planning, is the most effective method to treat periodontal disease. Other benefits include:

  • No needles required: Arestin is not an injection, but instead a locally applied antibiotic.
  • Working on contact: the microspheres are tiny particles that contain an antibiotic and immediately adhere to the surfaces inside the tooth’s pocket.
  • Working overtime: Once you leave the dentist’s office, the microspheres will release the antibiotic over time and fight bacteria longer than a deep cleaning alone.
