Preventive Peridex Rinse

For which conditions would you have the patient do an in-office preventive Peridex rinse? Also, for artificial joints: after 2 years of antibiotic pre-med, would you still recommend Peridex rinse prior to prophy?

Pre-procedural Rinse is generally used for each and every patient. I’ve never heard to only use it for joint replacements etc…. Chlorhexidine Pre-Procedural rinse use for every patient especially when using instruments that create an aerosol. Hope this helps.

Antibiotic pre-med is no longer required unless its mitral valve prolapse, a murmur or something of the sort. I always do tell the patient that the ADA no longer requires it, but to ask their Dr (orthopedic surgeon usually) if they would like them to continue taking it. In regards to pre-rinse I really should have patients do it, but I do not.
