Give your gums a fighting chance
That’s why Dr Longbottom may decide to add an antibiotic called ARESTIN®
Minocycline Microspheres make it different
ARESTIN® is a small amount of antibiotic powder that is placed inside infected periodontal pockets just after Dr Longbottom finishes the SRP procedure. Once ARESTIN® is inserted, it immediately adheres to the periodontal pocket. Through a process called “polymer hydrolysis”, tiny holes in the Microspheres provide “escape routes” for the drug to be slowly released and absorbed into the surrounding gum tissue. This allows for a “sustained release” of the antibiotic, meaning ARESTIN® continues to work inside your gums for up to 21 days.
