Introduction

Hexidine Mouth Wash is used in the treatment of inflammation of gums. It kills the harmful microorganisms in the oral cavity that cause swollen gums, and tartar, bad odor from the mouth. This way it cleans the affected area and speeds up healing.

Hexidine Mouth Wash should be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the doctor’s instructions or use it in the dose and duration suggested by the doctor. Do not stop using it until you have finished the complete course, even when you feel better. You must have to avoid eating, drinking, or smoking for at least 30 minutes after using it.

It is a safe medicine with little or no side effects. However, it may cause staining of teeth, hard dental plaque, and taste change in some people. Inform your doctor if bothers you or does not go away.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way it works but talk to your doctor before using it if you have used a similar medicine before and had an allergic reaction.
