What is Chlorhexidine Gluconate 1% Gel Hexigel®
Hexigel Mouth Gel is an antiseptic that binds strongly to the surface of teeth, inner cheeks and gums. It works by killing the harmful microorganisms that cause swollen gums, tartar, bad odor from mouth, and other mouth infections.
Chlorhexidine gluconate is a germicidal mouthwash gel that reduces bacteria in the mouth. Chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse is used to treat gingivitis (swelling, redness, bleeding gums). Chlorhexidine gluconate is usually prescribed by a dentist.
Chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse is not for treating all types of gingivitis. Use the medication only to treat the condition your dentist prescribed it for. Do not share this medication with another person, even if they have the same gum symptoms you have.
How to use Chlorhexidine Gluconate 1% Gel Hexigel®
- For oral hygiene, plaque inhibition and gingivitis: Brush your teeth with the gel once or twice a day.
- For the management of aphthous and other oral ulcers: Apply the gel to affected areas once or twice a day.
Warning: Brown staining may be reported with extensive and prolonged use in some cases. It can be removed by brushing or polishing.
