Alliance Family Dental, an independent family dental practice headed by Dr. Ian Gaskin and Dr. David Millhouse, is dedicated to providing Niagara Falls area families with the latest in dental health technology. This year, the practice is introducing Arestin powder treatments to fight periodontal disease and tooth loss, and keep teeth healthy all year around.

Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss on the planet, but Arestin treatment provides a powerful strike back against the bacteria that promote gum disease and tooth loss. Arestin powder contains hundreds of thousands of tiny microspheres, each filled with the antibiotic drug minocycline.

These spheres are applied to infected gums by the dentist, and dissolve over time to release metered doses of medication directly into infected oral regions. The application procedure for Arestin is painless, and since it dissolves over time to release its dose of medication, there is no need for a follow-up removal procedure.

Since the treatment is uniquely able to reach infected areas directly and quickly, it is considered an excellent line of defense against harmful gum disease and other infectious bacteria. Arestin fights dangerous bacteria long after patients leave Dr. Gaskin's chair at Alliance Family Dental, and helps ensure peace of mind as well.

Arestin treatments at Alliance Family Dental may be covered by medical or dental insurance, and the provider works with their patients to determine coverage and develop an affordable treatment plan. Whether families are looking for simple, preventative dental care like the new Arestin treatment, or detailed cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, the offices of Dr. Ian Gaskin and Dr. David Millhouse aim to provide optimal dental health for patients of any age. The clinic also understands the occasional need for emergency dental care, and makes every effort to see clients as soon as possible in necessary cases.
