In order to lower the levels of harmful oral bacteria, our dental team may recommend performing an ARESTIN® antibiotic treatment. This medication helps our dentist to heal your mouth of periodontal disease. Please schedule an appointment at the office of Stan Scalf DMD if you want to receive ARESTIN in Georgetown, Kentucky.
One of the many effects gum disease has on your mouth is an increased level of oral bacteria. These bacteria not only make it harder for your mouth to fight off gum disease, but they can also spread to other parts of your body, resulting in an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, pregnancy complications, diabetes problems, and respiratory infections. In order to lower the bacteria count in your mouth, we offer ARESTIN antibiotics.
ARESTIN is a treatment typically performed with a scaling and root planing procedure. After we finish removing plaque and tartar from your teeth’s roots, we will fill the periodontal pockets between your teeth and gums with the ARESTIN medication. These microspheres slowly release the antibiotic directly to your gum tissues over time. Studies have shown that this treatment can actually improve the effectiveness of scaling and root planing. Schedule an appointment with us today if you want to benefit from an ARESTIN antibiotic treatment.
