After Application of Arestin

Why Do We Use Arestin?

Arestin is a sustained presence antibiotic that was placed to assist in the elimination of a significant inflammatory process localized around your implant(s) and/or teeth. The major benefits of using Arestin rely on its sustained presence in the site.
