Arestin is used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing for the reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. Arestin may be used as part of a periodontal maintenance program, which includes good oral hygiene.
How ARESTIN® helps
Arestin is a locally administered antibiotic that is used along with scaling and root planing. Arestin kills the bacteria that scaling and root planing can’t reach. This delays the bacteria from returning as your gums heal.
