Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2014 -- Absolute Smile is now offering Arestin for Periodontal Disease treatment. Periodontal Disease is a chronic bacterial infection affecting the gums and bones surrounding the teeth. The bacteria buildup causes inflammation that leads to red, swollen gums and damage to ligaments and bones that hold teeth in place. The disease can exacerbate other health problems including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, so it is important for anyone with these conditions to seek treatment as soon as symptoms arise.
Arestin helps control periodontal disease and reverse its effects. When combined with scaling and root planning, the treatment helps reduce the number of harmful bacteria in periodontal pockets. The antibiotic powder is administered through a painless injection directly into the periodontal pockets. The sustained release process fights the infection for 21 days.
Unfortunately, Periodontal Disease is chronic, meaning it can last a long time or even forever. However, regular, aggressive treatments with Arestin can effectively keep the condition under control, allowing patients to go about their lives normally. Even if the disease goes into remission, patients should undergo regular monitoring of their gum health to ensure they don’t experience a flare-up.
In addition to Arestin treatments, Absolute Smile will give their patients home care advice for ongoing management of Periodontal Disease and perform periodic monitoring to make sure their gums are in good health. Some bacteria remain after treatments, and they can settle back into pockets in just 90 days – this is why patients must keep at it and not give flare-ups a chance to happen.
