Minocycline 2% Mucoadhesive Gel Kit
Alternate to Arestin®
Minocycline 2% is a mucoadhesive gel that is indicated as an adjunct to scaling and root planing procedures for reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. It is significantly more effective than scaling and root planing alone and may be used as part of a periodontal maintenance program which includes good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
Each minocycline 2% gel kit comes packaged with two luer-lock syringes and coupling mechanism provided for mixing purposes. Also included are ten 1.2 cc luer lock syringes and pre-bent disposable flow tips for subgingival insertion into periodontal pockets. Click here for complete mixing instructions.
Note: Once the syringes are mixed together, minocycline 2% gel has an expiration date of 5 days. Before the syringes are mixed, they have an expiration date of 6 months. It is good practice to only mix medication that is needed immediately before using.
Scaling and root planning, and locally delivered minocycline reduces the load of Prevotella intermedia in an interdependent pattern, correlating with symptomatic improvements of chronic periodontitis: a short-term randomized clinical trial. – Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management
