What is the active ingredient of Arestin?

  1. Doxycycline hyclate
  2. Chlorhexidine
  3. Minocycline
  4. All of the above combined

- Periochip - chlorhexidine

- Atridox - doxyclycline hyclate (a tetracycline antibiotic)

Arestin, Atridox, and Periochip are all placed in the deepest part of a diseased pocket and are left to dissolve on their own.
