Highly effective 0.2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate mouthwash, ideal for immunocompromised patients.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate Antiseptic Mouthwash is an antimicrobial solution which inhibits the formation of dental plaque. It is indicated as an aid to the treatment and prevention of gingivitis and in the maintenance of oral hygiene, particularly in situations where toothbrushing cannot be adequately employed (eg following oral surgery or in physically handicapped patients). It is used to promote gingival healing following periodontal surgery or to manage recurrent oral ulceration. Additionally it is useful in the treatment of denture stomatitis and thrush.
Children, adults and the elderly.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate Antiseptic Mouthwash should be used as required up to twice daily.
Rinse the mouth thoroughly for about 1 minute with 10 ml. Prior to dental surgery, the patient should be instructed to rinse the mouth with 10 ml for 1 minute. In the treatment of gingivitis a course of about one month is recommended (ie two bottles). For denture stomatitis cleanse and soak the denture in solution for 15 minutes twice daily. In the case of aphthous ulceration and oral candidal infections, treatment should be continued for 48 hours after clinical resolution.
