Chlorhexidine gluconate is used to treat gingivitis, another name for mild gum disease. Symptoms can include bad breath and gum redness, swelling and bleeding. While brushing your teeth and gums twice per day and flossing once per day help prevent gingivitis, this mouthwash may help reduce the symptoms when you're already in the early stages.
This mouthwash could be a simple solution to getting your smile back on track to health and confidence. Chlorhexidine gluconate oral rinse contains a chemical called chlorhexidine, which destroys harmful mouth bacteria, treats gingivitis, and promotes the healing of inflamed gums.
It also goes by the name Peridex, PerioGard, Paroex, Betasept and Dyna-Hex.
