Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic that is used in dental products to help decrease bacteria in the mouth. It is the most effective antiseptic mouthwash to date and it is considered to be the “gold standard” within the industry. Dentists primarily recommend it to treat the inflammation, swelling, and bleeding that comes with gingivitis or other issues with gums and teeth.
Whilst chlorhexidine has incredible disinfecting qualities and is a fantastic solution for a variety of mouth, gum, and teeth related issues, it has certain side effects that are related to its use. The most common is tooth pigmentation, leading to yellowing or browning of the teeth. This can lead patients to feel very reluctant to use the product, thus lowering patient compliance with the treatment. Ultimately, this makes the treatment much less effective and the condition it is used to treat may not improve. Without full compliance to prescribed periodontology treatment, clinical success is limited.
Curasept is a revolutionary product as it contains the best ingredient for dealing with sore and infected gums, without the side effects that can be so off-putting to users. Curaspet have a range of chlorhexidine mouthwashes with a patented Anti Discolouration System (ADS). The anti-staining formula helps to drastically reduce the risk of staining when using the product, thus increasing patient compliance.
The mouthwash is recommended to treat many conditions, including but not limited to:
- Mouth ulcers or sores
- Bleeding gums
- Pre and post-surgery
- Sore gums as a result of orthodontic fittings
- Receding gums
ADS mouthwash protects teeth and gums from bacteria and plaque. It works by quickly killing harmful bacteria that may be present in the mouth. The range contains PVP-VA (PolyVinylPyrrolidone Vinyl Acetate) which is a copolymer with mucoadhesive properties and an outstanding ability to create a film on the oral structures. In short, the formula essentially “sticks” to dental surfaces after the mouthwash has been used, meaning that it continues to perform even after it has been spat out. Due to the creation of this film, it prevents the aggregation of bacteria over teeth and gum surfaces, therefore slowing down the accumulation and development of plaque.
The ADS range includes:
- 220: 0.2% CHX intensive treatment for short term use.
- 205: 0.05% CHX plus fluoride for daily use, also recommended for orthodontic patients.
- Perio: 0.12% CHX and hyaluronic acid – for periodontal patients as hyaluronic acid promotes tissue repair.
- Implant: 0.2% CHX and hyaluronic acid – high strength formula recommended pre- and post- implant treatment for short term use.
The range is extremely versatile and offers safe and reliable performance for a range of conditions. Depending on the concentration, it can even be used for long-term therapy. All mouthwashes within the selection are clinically proven and the latest research confirms ADS efficacy, offering you complete peace of mind.
