Ways to get rid of peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) teeth staining?

Prophy. Stain from Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) is only on the surface of your teeth. It can easily be removed by a dental hygienist.
Frequent brushing. Frequent toothbrushing and more visits to the dentist for professional attempts of removal of stains.
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.

Afraid to ask implant dentist but why should I put up with teeth staining using chlorhexidine gluconate? Does no more than anti-bacterial OTC?

Chlorhexidine. Yes, one of the drawbacks of using Chlorhexidine Gluconate is staining which can be objectionable. Don't be afraid to ask.

I just had 2 dental implants and have chlorhexidine gluconate 0.12% oral rinse. Prevent more tartar buildup vs. OTC mouth wash while gums heal?

Chlorhexidine will reduce chance of surgical sites becoming infected. OTC mouthwashes for the most part just enrich the manufacturer and can actually interfere with healing. Read more...
Chlorhexidine is OK. You are only going to use the Chlorhexidine for a week or two...perhaps up to four weeks. Although Chlorhexidine does stain teeth and promote tartar build-up, the effect in such a short time should be insignificant. So, follow your dentist's instructions and don't worry about it. If you are concerned about tartar, just get your next dental cleaning with your hygienist a little earlier than usual. Read more...

How many days you do Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) mouthwash after simple dental implant on 2 upper molar teeth. Would warm salty water wash be better.

7-10. Typically 7-10 days to decrease bacterial presence. Warm salt water is also fine in addition to peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate). I would not do less than 5 nor more than 10. Good Luck. Read more...

After 2 basic dental implants 12&13, which do you use: Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) or warm salty water wash and for how many days. Cons & pros please. Thanks.

Both. Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) typically for 7- 10 days to decrease bacterial count . Too long and you invite fungal infection. Warm salt water is always good. Keeping the area clean is most important. Much depends on if there is a temporary restoration on the implant, or a healing abutment or cover screw. Good luck. Read more...
Either. You could use either....I prefer the peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) but if you don't have that you could use a warm salt rinse or a warm saline rinse. Read more...
Use both. Keeping your mouth clean after surgery is essential to reduce the risk of infection. Start salt water and Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) rinses as directed the day following your implant surgery. Read more...
