Periodontal Disease Treatment with Arestin®

At our Oxford, OH dental practice, we are dedicated to giving you a healthy, beautiful smile. To do this, we take care of the teeth and the tissues, gums, and bones that support and surround them. We aim to prevent and, if necessary, treat periodontal (gum) disease to free you from its harmful consequences. Untreated periodontal disease has been linked to:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Stroke
  • Cardiovascular disease

To spare you from these dangerous diseases, we offer a variety of periodontal disease treatments, including scaling and root planing and Arestin®.  Arestin® is an FDA-approved antibiotic that can be used as part of the scaling and root planing procedures to help eliminate the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. We invite you to call Dr. Farmer’s office today to learn more about Arestin® and your other options for treating periodontal disease. We’ll be happy to help you get back to optimal oral health.
