INTRODUCTION

PINKGUMS GEL is a combination of Chlorhexidine, Metronidazole and Lignocaine which belong to the groups of medicines called Antiseptic Antibacterial agents, Nitroimidazoles and Local Anesthetics, respectively. PINKGUMS GEL is used to treat halitosis, gingivitis, oral stomatitis, pain due to mouth ulcers and food burns. It is also used to prevent plaque growth on the teeth.

Halitosis is a condition that occurs due to trapped bacteria on the uneven microscopic surface of the tongue that produces odours, contributing to bad breath in an individual. Gingivitis is a form of gum disease that occurs due to poor hygiene and is generally characterised by symptoms such as swollen and receding gums.

Oral stomatitis is a condition characterised by painful swelling and sores inside the mouth that occur due to an infection, an allergic reaction or irritating foods. Mouth ulcers are small lesions that develop in your mouth or at the base of your gums, which make eating and drinking uncomfortable.

PINKGUMS GEL is not recommended for use in patients who are allergic to chlorhexidine or metronidazole. lignocaine, methyl hydroxybenzoate, propyl hydroxybenzoate or para-aminobenzoic acid. Before applying PINKGUMS GEL, inform your doctor if you have traumatised (injured) mucosa, sepsis (a life-threatening infection) in the application site, poor general health, severe liver disease and renal dysfunction and/or a partial or complete heart block.

PINKGUMS GEL should be used with caution during pregnancy and only if necessary, in breastfeeding women. PINKGUMS GEL is not recommended for use by children (below 12 years of age). The most common symptoms of applying PINKGUMS GEL are dry mouth, altered taste sensations (such as metallic taste), discoloured or coated tongue, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Consult your doctor if any of these symptoms get worse.

HOW PINKGUMS GEL WORKS

PINKGUMS GEL helps to treat mouth ulcers, halitosis, gingivitis and oral stomatitis and prevents plaque growth. Chlorhexidine heals ulcers by decreasing the number of bacteria in the mouth, leading to decreased swelling and redness of the gums, Metronidazole kills bacteria or other microorganisms by damaging their DNA and Lignocaine provides relief from painful mouth sores by forming a protective coating over the mouth sores and blocking their pain signals.
