What is Hexidine® Antiseptic/Antiplaque Mouth Wash?
Chlorhexidine gluconate is a prescription-strength germicidal mouthwash that decreases bacteria in your mouth. Chlorhexidine is the most effective antiseptic mouthwash to date. Dentists primarily prescribe it to treat the inflammation, swelling, and bleeding that comes with gingivitis.
Hexidine Mouth Wash 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 the mouth, and other mouth infections. Whenever there is an overgrowth of microorganisms in our mouth, that are otherwise normally present, it can lead to unpleasant symptoms suggestive of mouth infection. These symptoms include bad breath, swollen gums, unpleasant taste changes, the sensitivity of teeth to hot or cold food/liquid, etc.
Hexidine Mouth Wash kills and prevents the growth of these bacteria, thereby relieving these symptoms. This helps in maintaining good oral hygiene. Poor oral hygiene can be extremely embarrassing and can affect your social life. This medicine helps restore your self-confidence and makes it easier for you to go about your daily activities. Continue using it as advised by the doctor to get maximum benefit.
Hexidine Mouth Wash is used in the treatment of inflammation of gums. It kills the harmful microorganisms in the oral cavity that cause swollen gums, and tartar, bad odor from the mouth. This way it cleans the affected area and speeds up healing. Hexidine Mouth Wash should be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the doctor’s instructions or use it in the dose and duration suggested by the doctor. Do not stop using it until you have finished the complete course, even when you feel better.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way it works but talk to your doctor before using it if you have used a similar medicine before and had an allergic reaction.
