Pockets increase in depth
Your dental professional will measure the depth of your pockets using a tiny probe. A pocket of 4 or more millimeters is a sign that you have gum disease. If you wait to treat your gum disease, it could lead to painful and expensive surgery in the future. So don't wait. Ask your dental professional how ARESTIN® can help prevent further damage today.
A pocket depth of 4 mm or more may mean you have an infection.
A pocket depth of 7 mm or more has the highest risk of permanent damage.
