Does anyone use anything else besides Arestin after doing SRP? Our office charges $58 per site & insurance doesn’t cover majority of times.

We give periogaurd. Unfortunately this does not go all the way to the bottom of the pockets but with consistent patient use and bringing back for perio maint we see good rules.

There is always the option of billing Arestin to the patient’s medical insurance. Some offices use Periochip or laser decontamination. However, a recent study by the ADA found no evidence of benefit with these SRP adjuncts. Here’s the link (see table 5): http://jada.ada.org/article/S0002-8177(15)00334-7/fulltext
