1 doctor agrees

In brief: Chlorhexadine

From researching this question it seems that the active ingredient in the dental rinse is Chlorhexidine gluconate the reference to the digluconate appears in the Periochip form. I do not see the digluconate as the active ingredient in the products we use in dentistry.

In brief: Not much

They work the same way, one product has a slight difference in chemical structure.
