Antiseptic liquid No.1
Chlorhexidine bigluconate is an antiseptic that suppresses the anaerobic flora of root canals. The product is effective against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and retains its properties in blood and pus. ANTISEPTIC LIQUID No. 1 effectively sterilizes root canals. The product does not deteriorate the adhesion properties of filling materials.
The alkaline environment and sodium hypochlorite reduce the strength of chlorhexidine bigluconate and decompose it with the formation of yellow and brown residues that stain the hard tissues of the teeth. Dilution of a solution of chlorhexidine bigluconate with hard water makes the product less effective.
Chlorhexidine bigluconate is compatible with such antiseptics as benzylalkonium chloride and cetrimide.
