ARESTIN® Contains Minocycline, a Proven, Broad-Spectrum Antibiotic1
ARESTIN® has a unique delivery system where minocycline microspheres are administered as a powder to allow for easy placement at the base of the pocket.1
Once inserted in the pocket, contact with gingival crevicular fluid hydrolyzes the bioadhesive microspheres, allowing them to immediately adhere to the surrounding surfaces. This also causes water-filled channels to form inside the microspheres, providing for a sustained release of minocycline over time.1
ARESTIN® can remain active in the pocket for an extended period of time and does not require removal because it is bioresorbable.1
