Comment:
Exactly 10 days after having it put under my gums I started breaking out in hives and had sever facial swelling. Two trips to the ER for anaphylactic reaction two different DRs said that the most likely cause was the pellets and they needed to come out! Dentist did a deep cleaning and flush to remove Arestin. Thousands of dollars for the dental work now thousands more for major allergic reaction!

It has helped to heal my gums -- but I just had a sudden hive reaction after a 2nd application and some intestinal issues. My dentist claims its not the Arestin because it didn't happen within an hour after application. The only other time I had hives in my life was 40 years ago after taking too much of fat soluble vitamin. So I am convinced it's the Arestin being released into my system.

This extremely helps pocketing due to periodontal disease and helped prevent further bone loss. Simple to place and worth the $$$
