Stained Teeth

Patients often wonder if the Perigard / Chlorhexidine Gluconate rinse will stain their teeth. Yes, it appears on the prescription label but it is unlikely. The rinse kills the bacteria in the plaque on your teeth and gums. If you brush and floss your teeth often the plaque will be removed and you shouldn't notice any staining of your teeth. If it does build up it's not a problem and can be easily removed with a professional polishing. You must continue to use the rinse to prevent an infection in your mouth. If you have any questions regarding your stained teeth feel free to call the Levittown office. We will be happy to answer you questions.
