In brief: Antibiotic

Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) oral rinse contains the prescription-strength ingredient Chlorhexidine gluconate.
This ingredient is only available through your dentist or doctor. Chlorhexidine gluconate has years of clinical study and experience showing effective antimicrobial activity (in other words, it destroys or inhibits the growth of microorganisms).
