The Rationale of Composition:
- Chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX ) is a germicidal mouthwash that reduces bacteria in the mouth.
- The efficacy of CHX in reducing oral bacterial viability, strongly inhibiting plaque re-growth, and preventing gingivitis has been demonstrated in many studies
- CHX remains active for 8-12 hours
Mode of action:
Chlorhexidine has two way action on bacteria :
- Ruptures cell membrane
- Interferes with bacterial colonization and cell attachment
Fluoride is found naturally in soil, water, foods, and several minerals. Fluoride is also synthesized in laboratories. Synthesized fluoride is commonly added to the drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwashes and various chemical products.
Fluoride has been primarily utilized as an anti-caries agent. The use of fluoride mouth rinses probably is one of the most commonly used methods for caries prevention.
Oral hygiene products containing metals, such as zinc chloride, are considered by some specialists to be among the most effective treatments for halitosis (bad breath).
Oral bacteria bind to surface proteins and metabolize the protein particles into sulfur gas. Sulfur is an organic compound that is often identified by its rotten egg smell. These sulfur gases give your breath an unpleasant odor. Zinc ions reduce the concentration of sulfur gases.
Zinc metal has the ability to neutralize bad breath temporarily. They don’t change the conditions in the mouth, and they don’t have any activity against the odour-producing bacteria themselves, therefore, once all of the metal has reacted with sulphur, or been rinsed from the mouth, the bad odour associated with halitosis returns. So the rest of the work is done by Chlorhexadinegluconate.
