Peridex Oral Rinse Description

Was your last dental exam a little disappointing and maybe surprising when you learned you had moderate to severe gingivitis? With the busy lifestyle many lead, taking time for proper brushing and flossing may just be too time consuming for some, and this is unfortunate. Ask your dentist about Peridex Oral Rinse or generic Chlorhexidine, an oral antiseptic that can help treat and prevent gingivitis. Taking time now to avoid further periodontal disease is worth it to keep your teeth healthy. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Using Peridex Oral Rinse Daily Will Reduce Risk of Infections

After flossing to loosen food particles, brush your teeth in small circular movements along the gum line as well as the top-side surface of your teeth. Pre-measure the Peridex Oral Rinse, usually about 15ml, and swish it around and throughout your mouth for about 30 seconds. Spit the rinse out, do not swallow it. Wait at least ½ hour before rinsing your mouth.

The active ingredient called Chlorhexidine Gluconate will help to reduce gum redness and swelling as it decreases the amount of bacteria in your mouth that can cause gingivitis. Chlorhexadine is effective as a broad spectrum biocide that works by disrupting cell membranes so the microorganisms are not able to grow or replicate.

Conditions Treated by Peridex Oral Rinse

One of the most distinctive features of humans and other mammals are their teeth. We are diphyodont, which simply means we have not one, but two sets of teeth in our life time. To hold these teeth in place, we have gums that fit around each tooth. If your gums are not healthy, they can become inflamed, swollen, and bleed when you brush your teeth. It’s important that you look after your mouth to avoid permanent damage as your diseased gums shrink back and your teeth become unstable.

Before You Use Peridex Oral Rinse

Follow your doctor or dentist’s instructions for using Peridex Oral Rinse in order to fully benefit from the action of Chlorhexidine. List other oral medications you use or take so it can be determined if there may be any interactions with Peridex Oral Rinse.

Peridex Oral Rinse Precautions

Use Peridex Oral Rinse after a meal and brushing/flossing your teeth. Chlorhexidine can leave an unpleasant taste in your mouth but you should not rinse with water for at least 30 minutes to reduce the taste as this will wash away the antiseptic effectiveness. Do not allow anyone under 18 years of age to use Peridex Oral Rinse without consent from your doctor/dentist. Keep Peridex Oral Rinse stored safely out of children’s access.
