How Does Chlorhexidine Mouthwash Work?

Chlorhexidine mouthwash contains an antiseptic called chlorhexidine digluconate.

This helps to remove bacteria and plaque from teeth when used in conjunction with good oral hygiene, such as brushing your teeth twice a day.

How Do I Use Chlorhexidine Mouthwash?

Chlorhexidine should be used twice a day.

Be aware: Chlorhexidine Mouthwash is not intended for long term use and should only be used for one month at a time. Longer use can result in staining of the teeth.

You should use Chlorhexidine mouthwash after brushing your teeth.

Before using Chlorhexidine mouthwash, rinse your mouth with water.

Toothpaste can prevent Chlorhexidine Mouthwash from working correctly if used before the mouthwash.

To use Chlorhexidine Mouthwash, pour 10ml into the measuring cup provided with the mouthwash.

Do not dilute Chlorhexidine Mouthwash with water.

Do not swig Chlorhexidine Mouthwash directly from the bottle as this can introduce bacteria into the mouthwash.

Swirl the mouthwash around your mouth for 30-60 seconds. Make sure to swish it thoroughly around your mouth for maximum benefit.

Spit the mouthwash into the sink.

Do not swallow Chlorhexidine Mouthwash.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I use chlorhexidine mouthwash?

Chlorhexidine Mouthwash – like any mouthwash – should not be used immediately after brushing your teeth; this can remove the fluoride from your toothpaste. Instead, you can use Chlorhexidine Mouthwash after meals, no more than twice a day. If you have to use Chlorhexidine Mouthwash just after brushing, rinse your mouth with water first.

What should I do if I swallow chlorhexidine mouthwash?

It is unlikely that swallowing a little Chlorhexidine Mouthwash is going to harm you, although you may feel a little nauseated. A large quantity, however, can be harmful, and if you swallow this much, you must go to your nearest A & E department immediately or speak to your doctor if this is not possible.

Can I drink alcohol while using chlorhexidine mouthwash?

Drinking alcohol is unlikely to interact with Chlorhexidine Mouthwash. However, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can worsen gum disease and other oral health conditions. You should avoid drinking more than 14 units of alcohol per week, as per the government’s guidelines.

Some alcoholic drinks, such as red wine, can stain teeth and should be avoided for at least 1 hour after using Chlorhexidine Mouthwash.

Will chlorhexidine mouthwash impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?

It is unlikely that Chlorhexidine Mouthwash will affect your ability to drive or operate machinery. If you experience any side effects which might hinder your cognitive ability, such as dizziness, tiredness or visual disturbances, refrain from engaging in such activities until you feel that it is safe to do so.

Is chlorhexidine mouthwash alcohol-free?

Chlorhexidine Mouthwash contains 7% alcohol. However, as you do not ingest it, it is unlikely that the alcohol will affect you.

Does chlorhexidine mouthwash kill thrush?
