FAQs

Q. How long should you use Hexigel?

The duration of use of Hexigel will depend on the condition it is being prescribed for. If you are using it for gum disease (gingivitis) it may be used for a month. If being used for mouth ulcers and thrush, this mouthwash may be used till 2 days after the symptoms are relieved.

Q. Does Hexigel stain teeth?

Yes, though it does not occur in everyone, Hexigel may stain your teeth and tongue. Staining is not permanent and may disappear after discontinuation of treatment. Brushing the teeth with regular toothpaste prior to using Hexigel can prevent staining. You should also avoid tannin-containing food and drinks such as tea and coffee.

Q. Does Hexigel help bad breath?

Yes, Hexigel is effective in reducing bad breath, which persists for about 3 hours. However, risk of staining teeth and alteration of taste should be borne in mind before you start using it. In addition, use this medicine judiciously.

Q. How should Hexigel be used?

It should be used as required. It is generally used twice daily. Rinse the mouth thoroughly for about 1 minute with 10 ml of Hexigel mouthwash. After rinsing, expel it from your mouth.

Q. What precautions should be followed while using Hexigel?

Using toothpastes immediately after the mouthwash may interfere with working of mouthwash properly. Use it before the mouthwash or at a different time of the day. Always rinse your mouth before using the mouthwash.
