Dental Supplies You’ll Find Nowhere Else
One of the most common periodontal diseases is called gingivitis. This article focuses on this particular disease in terms of its symptoms, causes and treatment. In addition, a considerable part of this article is dedicated to putting Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12%under the spot light, considering this product an effective treatment for the above mentioned disease.
The principle cause for gingivitis is the long-term effect of plaque deposits. Plaque is a sticky material made of bacteria, mucus and food debris that develops on the exposed parts of the teeth.
Common symptoms are bleeding gums, mouth sores, swollen gums and bright red or red-purple appearance to gums.
The goal of the treatment is to reduce inflammation. The teeth should be cleaned thoroughly by the dentist. This process may involve certain instruments to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth. The dentist should have all the necessary dental supplies ready at hand before beginning the cleaning session. Once the cleaning is done, oral hygiene is extremely necessary. This includes both brushing and flossing.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% is a part of the treatment because it reduces plaque formation by killing bacteria.
Patients usually wonder why they should use Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% instead of an over the counter rinse…..well, the answer is because unlike over the counter rinses, Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% has a high level of substantivity. This means it keeps working for a long time after you use it.
Because Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% has alcohol, it tends to have a burning sensation. It also has a very strong minty flavor.
It is the dentist’s responsibility to inform the patient of the side effects of Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12%, which could include the staining of the teeth. In rare cases the patient might experience altered taste when using this product.
Besides being present in oral rinses, Chlorhexidine Gluconate is also found in skin cleansers, and in small quantities it is used as a preservative.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate belongs to the biguanides chemical group. It is bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal, causing cell wall decomposition, leading to the loss of the cell’s components.
