Arestin

Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gumline.

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

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