Arestin Periodontal Treatment

Why is periodontal therapy such an important service? Because recent estimates claim that over half of American adults have some form of gum disease. Plus, many studies have linked gum disease to other health conditions, like heart disease, pre-term birth, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and stroke. All of this makes effective periodontal therapy one of the most important services a dentist can provide.

Treating Gum Disease with Arestin

Right now, one of the best tools for fighting gum disease is an antibiotic called Arestin. But Arestin isn’t like other antibiotics. Instead, being taken by mouth as a pill, Dr. Bolin will apply your Arestin treatment directly to an infected pocket. Once there, the tiny, medicated particles that make up Arestin will go to work, killing harmful bacteria.

Treatment with Arestin takes just one appointment, but is more effective than scaling and root planing by themselves. What’s more, one Arestin treatment keeps working for days after it’s administered. That means you can leave our Fort Worth office and go back to your normal schedule, confident in the fact that your smile is getting healthier day-by-day.

To learn more about Arestin and how it combats bacteria, visit their official website. You can also call our Fort Worth dental office with your questions or to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Bolin. We would be happy to talk to you more about Arestin and how we’re using it to help our Fort Worth-area patients improve their oral and overall health.

McCart Family Dentistry proudly serves patients from Hurst, Watauga, North Richland Hills, Saginaw, and all surrounding areas.
