When most people think about tooth loss, the first thing that comes to mind as having caused it is tooth decay. However, most tooth loss is actually caused by gum disease. With gum disease on the rise, it’s more important than ever that you put in the effort to keep your mouth healthy with daily brushing and flossing, and regular dentist exams.
At Smiles of Bellevue, we’re proud to offer a simple and effective new treatment for gum disease. It’s called ARESTIN, and it’s an antibiotic that targets the bacteria that cause gum disease. The time-released antibiotic in powder form is applied directly to the site of the infection. The bacteria will be killed off quickly and painlessly, helping you
get rid of gum disease and prevent tooth loss.
ARESTIN isn’t a substitute for good dental care, but it will help treat existing tooth decay and restore the health of your gums so you can avoid tooth loss.
