In this video Dr. Kamran Sahabi dentist in North Hollywood, CA discusses the use of local antibiotics to treat periodontal disease, or gum disease, which is a bacterial infection in the mouth. Local infections in the mouth can be treated with a local antibiotic such as Arestin, a member of the tetracycline family. Arestin is applied via a tiny syringe that is placed between the teeth and gums, and left in place for approximately 2 weeks to treat the infection. The use of an antibiotic rinse is also used to treat local infections, along with diligent brushing and flossing to combat the bacteria in the mouth. Straightening out crooked and misaligned teeth can also e prevent the development of gum disease by eliminating hiding spaces for bacteria to settle into. Arestin is not appropriate for patients with allergies to tetracycline, pregnant or nursing.For more videos visit http Dr. Kamran Sahabi also serves the following cities: Glendale CA, Montrose CA, Verdugo City CA, La Canada Flintdridge CA, La Cresenta CA, and Burbank CA
