If you have periodontal disease, Dr. Mahesh Solanki may recommend Arestin® antibiotic therapy to kill the harmful bacteria in your mouth and begin the process of restoring your oral health. Arestin is typically applied after scaling and root planing, and actively fights gum disease in your mouth for approximately a month. To learn more about Arestin and to make your appointment with our skilled dentist in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, please contact Whitman Dental Center at 215-501-7156.
