My experience and usage of Oradex in my clinic
I have been using this alcohol-free chlorhexidine based oral rinse ever since it has been introduced in the market. I use in many of my procedures, some of which I will mention below.
It is a standard procedure for all of my patients to have a Oradex gargle even before the anaesthetic is administered, to improve the oral hygiene of the patient, and in the hygienically compromised cases it improves the hygiene and also reduces the oral odour including that of the smokers. I also give it to all surgical and some of the extraction cases after the procedure. It helps very much in the healing, as compared to the days when I did not prescribe a mouth rinse.
The usage of Oradex before a scaling or periodontal procedure reduces mouth odour usually associated with such cases, making it more pleasant for the operator. Its continued use after the procedure facilitates healing of periodontal tissues considerably.
In cases of chronic periodontitis with very fast plaque and tartar formation, daily use of ORADEX EVERYDAY togather with proper oral hygiene instructions improves the health status of the periodontal tissues considerably. Patients are usually very thankful because they find it much easier to manage their periodontal tissues or gums as they call it.
After long procedures like crown and bridge preparations and banding up of orthodontic brackets, the usage of oradex gargle, improves the comfort level when the patient returns home, usually without the need for any analgesics.
