Indications

Peridex is a dental rinse used to treat gingivitis between visits to the dentist.

Chlorhexidine gluconate is a cationic molecule that kills bacteria and removes plaque when rinsed in the mouth to help treat gingivitis and issues in the root canal system. Peridex also improves painful and irritating symptoms of gingivitis by inhibiting signs of inflammation in your gums.

This antimicrobial mouthwash has been found equally as effective at killing bacteria than sodium hypochlorite but is much less toxic. Peridex has also proven effective against resistant bacterial strains and can improve conditions in the root canal such as gingivitis even without mechanical hygiene.

Cautions

FAQ

Should I rinse with water after using Peridex?

No, after rinsing the liquid formula around your mouth for at least thirty seconds, you should spit out the Peridex and then avoid rinsing, eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth right away. This is because rinsing could remove the medication and reduce its efficacy at killing bacteria in your mouth.

Should I brush my teeth before using Peridex?

Yes, Peridex is designed to be used twice a day after brushing your teeth in the morning and night. You should make sure that you brush before using the mouthwash because using it afterwards could reduce the efficacy of chlorhexidine by rinsing it away.
