If Healthy Gums rinse doesn stain teeth like Chlorhexidine (CHX), does that mean its not working?
Clinical trials have shown that Healthy Gums rinse is very effective in fighting pathogens that are present in gingivitis and periodontis; and it does this without the negative side effects of tooth stain or taste alteration! The staining in a CHX rinse is caused when it sticks to teeth. This ‘sticking’ process is called substantivity, which occurs when the CHX binds to proteins in the oral cavity. Though the effects can be unsightly, staining is often seen as a signal that the CHX is doing its job.
