Images show the vitality of the plaque biofilm after 4 days of treatment determined using an image analysis program to discriminate green (vital) bacteria, yellow (vital and dead) bacteria and red (dead) bacteria5*Mean values and statistical comparison between placebo and two chlorohexidine solutions in terms of plaque index, plaque area and biofilm vitality
Chlorhexidine is incompatible with anionic agents
Often present in conventional toothpastes, anionic agents interact with chlorhexidine.7,8 Toothpastes with anionic agents should therefore be used before Corsodyl Short-Term Intensive Treatment (rinsing the mouth between applications) or at a different time of day.
Simple recommendations to help avoid staining
To minimise the risk of staining after using chlorhexidine mouthwashes, advise patients to avoid tannin-containing food and drinks.
