    A Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% oral rinse for use between dental visits as part of a professional program for the treatment of gingivitis.

    The clinical significance of Peridex oral rinse’s antimicrobial activities is not clear. Three months after Peridex oral rinse use was discontinued, the number of bacteria in plaque had returned to baseline levels and resistance of plaque bacteria to chlorhexidine gluconate was equal to that at baseline. Peridex oral rinse is indicated for use between dental visits as part of a professional program for the treatment of gingivitis. Patients with a known sensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate should not use Peridex oral rinse. The effect of Peridex oral rinse on periodontitis has not been determined. Common side effects associated with the use of Peridex oral rinse include an increase in the staining of oral surfaces, an increase in calculus formation and an alteration in taste perception. Please see full prescribing information provided with the product.

    Suggested Applications

    • For use between dental visits as part of a professional program for the treatment of gingivitis as characterized by redness and swelling of the gingivae, including gingival bleeding upon probing.
