Peridex Oral Rinse (Chlorhexidine)
Peridex is a medicated mouth rinse formulated to kill oral bacteria. This medication helps reduce plaque and bacteria build-up. Your dentist in San Diego may prescribe Peridex after oral surgery.
Instructions for Use
After brushing your teeth, rinse with Peridex three times a day until you finish the bottle. Only a capful is needed. Swish it around in your mouth for 30 seconds then expel. Once the rinse is gone, you can use warm water with salt until your mouth has healed. Never swallow this medication.
Possible Side Effects
Peridex rinse may cause tongue and teeth staining. If this occurs, your San Diego dentist can remove the discoloration.
You may also experience some changes in taste while using Peridex. If you swallow the rinse accidentally, you may feel nauseous.
MI Paste & MI Paste Plus
MI Paste and MI Paste Plus are re-mineralizing kinds of toothpaste. The active ingredient is Recaldent, which is a component derived from milk protein. Recaldent delivers calcium and phosphate into tooth enamel. These are essential minerals that strengthen and reinforce tooth structure. Therefore, MI Paste is not a traditional toothpaste. Instead, it is an effective enamel treatment applied directly to teeth after you brush and floss. Both professional oral care products are the only ones of their kind. This is because they are the only product containing Recaldent.
MI Paste Plus is the same as MI Paste, with the enhanced benefits of a patented form of fluoride. Both products are simple to use and safe on enamel. Available flavors are vanilla, strawberry, mint, melon, and tutti-frutti.
Clinpro™ 5000 Toothpaste
Anti-cavity Clinpro 5000 is prescribed to control and prevent tooth decay. This prescription-strength toothpaste contains 5,000 ppm fluoride. As a result, Clinpro 5000 delivers more fluoride to each tooth than other leading brands. It also contains tri-calcium phosphate. This advanced formula allows the calcium to coexist with the fluoride until activation. The optimized formula re-mineralizes the whole tooth, not just the surface.
We also carry the Oral B gingivitis system as a kit. Contact our Scripps Poway Dental Care In San Diego, CA, today to learn more.
