We use the latest advanced medications to help you have a healthier mouth.
Advanced medications used to fight gum disease have recently been developed which allow us to place a small amount of antibiotic directly at the site of a localized infection. The medication is released slowly over several weeks to directly attack the infection and reduce pocketing. The medication we use for this goes by the name of Arestin, and more information can be found at their website: arestin.com. There are some limitations to this procedure, but when used in appropriate situations, we have found Arestin to be very effective in reducing pockets.
To find out more about advanced medications, visit us at our Annandale office, conveniently located around the corner from INOVA Fairfax Hospital near Merrifield, Burke and Vienna, VA. To schedule an appointment, call 703-698-9698 or fill out the form to the right.
