Chlorhexidine is one of the longest-standing antiseptics on the market and was introduced to the medical community in the 1950s. While it was widely prescribed for oral use, it’s largely been phased out. Patients of a certain age are likely familiar with its metallic taste and unfortunate stains that then have to be cleaned by a hygienist after use.
Educating your patients about their oral health is not just beneficial for their overall well-being. Improved care at home is an excellent way to increase patient satisfaction. The reason for that is pretty simple.
