    Arestin® (minocycline HCl) 1 mg Microspheres

    $589.95(Starting From)

    ARESTIN (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1mg is a locally applied used in combination with scaling and root planning (SRP) procedures to treat patients with adult periodontitis (gum disease).


    How to administer Arestin

    Part Number: ARESTIN

    The innovative microsphere technology that comes with Arestin® allows the antibiotic to remain active in an infected periodontal pocket for an extended period of time. Once Arestin® is inserted into the pocket, its microspheres immediately adhere to the surrounding surfaces, providing a sustained release of minocycline at the site of active infection.

    Arestin® is proven to target the red complex bacteria associated with periodontal disease and will help fight infection better than professional dental hygiene alone.

    In patients with pockets of 5mm or more, bleeding on probing and localized inflammation that cannot be controlled with SRP alone, Arestin® is the solution. Arestin® is the most conservative approach to periodontal disease treatment prior to surgery.
