DENTIHEX contains a sticky polymer which allows the slow release of chlorhexidine over a period of 24 hours. DENTIHEX increases in stickiness in moist areas and it sticks to both gums and teeth. The packaging contains a soft applicator which can be used to apply DENTIHEX directly. This can be used to access difficult oral areas, like the rear gums, or onto skin areas like in between the toes.
Or, alternatively, a pea-sized amount of DENTIHEX can be applied directly with a finger into the mouth or on skin folds.
By maintaining a normal environment in the mouth the formation of damaging properties like tartar and plaque can be reduced. DENTIHEX can be applied daily, twice weekly or weekly depending on the condition.
For best results when being applied to the mouth, DENTIHEX should be used after feeding. If animals can tolerate brushing, DENTIHEX can also be brushed on with a toothbrush. When applying to skin, DENTIHEX is re-applied every 24 hours, until improvement.
