TLC Dental makes scaling and root planing (SRP) more effective with Arestin
TLC Dental Group treats your gum disease with an innovative antibiotic
If you have periodontal (gum) disease, SRP will help improve the health of your teeth and gums. Bacteria are the cause of gum disease and Arestin is an antibiotic that helps kill bacteria at the root of the problem.
Arestin with SRP is more effective than SRP alone
During your SRP procedure a TLC Dental Group hygienist will place Arestin in the pockets below your gum line to achieve a higher level of effectiveness in combating periodontal disease.
Getting a TLC Dental Arestin treatment is easy
We will place these microspheres into infected areas as a routine part of your periodontal gum disease treatment. Arestin will dissolve on its own, so no removal is required.
Arestin is different from antibiotic pills
Microspheres release antibiotics over time
Arestin contains microspheres—tiny particles—that are smaller than grains of sand and are not visible to the eye. The microspheres are filled with the antibiotic minocycline hydrochloride. These microspheres release the antibiotic over time, killing bacteria so your gums can heal better than with SRP alone.
TLC Dental Group follow-up to Arestin treatment
Just as a superior detail cleaning can remove surface rust from your car, a TLC Dental Group SRP with Arestin can remove tartar and bacteria from your periodontal pockets. But oral bacteria, plaque, and tartar are just like rust. They don’t rest and love to return.
So to maintain your healthy gums achieved by TLC Dental SRP with Arestin, you should follow your TLC Dental oral hygiene instructions. In particular, you can best sustain your Dream Smile by using dental floss and your TLC Rotadent after every meal and by faithfully coming to the TLC Dental Group Fayetteville / Manlius office for your biannual Professional Dental Cleaning or “Recare.”
