Confront your periodontal (gum) disease

Gum disease is caused by bacteria above and below the gumline

And it’s the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States.

Even so, many people are tempted to ignore their dental professional's advice to treat gum disease in its early stages.

You have a choice. Do more now, or risk further disease progression. Left untreated, gum disease may lead to more serious problems that may require painful and expensive surgery.

In combination with scaling and root planing (SRP), your dentist can apply ARESTIN® (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg to help treat your gum disease.
