Antimicrobial Therapy (Atridox & Arestin)


Arestin is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved minocycline powder that is used to treat periodontal (gum) disease with scaling and root planing.


Atridox is an antibiotic gel that is placed gently into your gum pockets where bacteria thrive. It then quickly hardens to a waxlike substance, slowly releasing the antibiotic to the infected area for seven days.
