Chlorhexidine gluconate is often used as an active ingredient in oral rinses to reduce dental plaque and oral bacteria. It has been shown to have an immediate bactericidal action and a prolonged bacteriostatic action due to adsorption onto the pellicle-coated enamel surface.* If it is not deactivated, chlorhexidine may last longer in the mouth than other mouthwashes and this is partly why it is preferred over other treatments for gingivitis.*
