Composition and form of release
Active substances: metronidazole (10 mg / 1 g), chlorhexidine (0.5 mg / 1 g).
Dental Health Gel is produced in the form of a gum gel.
It is a combined antimicrobial agent used in dentistry. Efficiency is ensured by the presence of two components – metronidazole and chlorhexidine. Metronidazole is a 5-nitroimidazole. The mechanism of its action is due to the ability to interact with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of cells of microorganisms. In this case, the production of nucleic acids is inhibited and bacteria die. Active against protozoa: Entamoeba histolytica, Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia lamblia, as well as facultative anaerobes Bacterodes spp. (Bacteroides ovatus, Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides distasonis, Bacteroides thetaiotaomіcron, Bacteroides vulgaris), Prevotella spp. (Prevotella buccae, Prevotella bivia, Prevotella disiens), Fusobacterium spp., Veіllonella spp., Some facultative obligate (Clostridium spp.), Facultative (Eubacterіum spp., Peptococcus spp., Peptococcus spp., Peptostreptob. Gardnerella vaginalis. Aerobes are insensitive to metronidazole, but in the presence of mixed flora (anaerobes + aerobes), it acts synergistically with antibiotics. Chlorhexidine is a bactericidal antiseptic (kills bacteria). Active against a wide range of vegetative forms of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms, as well as yeast, dermatophytes and lipophilic viruses.
