Ornihex Mouth Gel


Introduction

Ornihex Mouth Gel is a combination medicine used in the treatment of mouth infection. It works by killing the microorganisms that cause gum disease, tartar, and other mouth infections.

Ornihex Mouth Gel should be applied on the site of lesion inside the mouth. Follow the doctor’s instruction 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.
