Arestin

Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gumline.

ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection.

  • It’s placed directly in the infected areas—or “pockets”—in your gums.
  • It’s applied right after scaling and root planing, the dental procedure that disrupts stubborn plaque and bacteria below your gum line—where brushing and flossing can’t reach.

ARESTIN® starts working quickly, right at the source of infection and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. (1,2)

ARESTIN® fights infection and inflammation for 30 days, (2), and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planning alone for up to 90 days. (3)
