Dental cleaning: Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) is a great "tool" for periodontal (gum) maintenence, but the stains can be unsightly. Have a thorough dental cleaning done-the polishing paste dental offices use comes in varying grades of abrasiveness and your doc/hygienist can choose one that will remove the staining.

Frequent brushing: Frequent toothbrushing and more visits to the dentist for professional attempts of removal of stains.

Prophy: Stain from Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) is only on the surface of your teeth. It can easily be removed by a dental hygienist.
