Our flagship product, ARESTIN (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg, is indicated as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) procedures for reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. Clinical studies show that ARESTIN plus SRP achieves greater pocket depth reduction than SRP alone.1
Using advanced microsphere technology, ARESTIN provides sustained release of minocycline, a broad-spectrum antibiotic that targets infection. Currently, ARESTIN is the leading locally administered antibiotic (LAA) for the treatment of periodontitis.2,3
Clinical trial data demonstrate clear benefits from active treatment with ARESTIN plus SRP when indicated to2:
- Target the microorganisms associated with a periodontal infection
- Significantly reduce pocket depth compared with SRP alone
- Help restore a state of periodontal health
- Help restore a healthy balance of bacteria
ARESTIN should not be used in any patient who has a known sensitivity to minocycline or tetracyclines.
