Brief Answer:
Chlorhexidine mouthwash

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for writing in.

You can buy any mouthwash with 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate salt. You can use it for 15 days and then discontinue for 10 days to avoid discolouration of teeth. Also avoid eating and drinking for 30 min after mouthwash.

Wishing you good health

Kind Regards
Dr Neha Sumra
