A unique microsphere delivery system provides therapeutic levels of antibiotic1

Microsphere technology makes ARESTIN (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg easy to use

ARESTIN allows for easy, targeted placement at the base of the periodontal pocket.1 Once inserted in the pocket, ARESTIN microspheres immediately adhere to the surrounding surfaces, providing a sustained release of minocycline at the site of active infection.1,2

ARESTIN is a locally applied antibiotic that is placed directly into the infected periodontal pocket at the time of scaling and root planing (SRP).1 ARESTIN has a unique delivery system where minocycline microspheres are administered as a powder to allow for easy, targeted placement at the base of the periodontal pocket.1

  • Data suggests no significant increase of minocycline-resistant bacteria1
  • Delivers a concentrated dose directly to the base of the pocket and the active infection site1
  • Convenience of an in-office treatment with no pills to take1
  • Allows for a variable dosing, as low as 1 mg per site1
