Broadly appealing rinse avoids irritation associated with alcohol and delivers therapeutic

benefits

Chicago, IL, April 6th, 2015 — With the launch of a new 4 oz size of GUM® Paroex®

Chlorhexidine Gluconate USP, 0.12% Oral Rinse, Sunstar Americas today reminded dental

professionals that it has the only FDA-approved alcohol-free chlorhexidine rinse, which makes it

possible for their entire patient base to have access to the same standard of care for the

treatment of gingivitis. Paroex® is designed to be used as part of a professional program to

treat gingivitis, leading to better gum health.

According to the company, other chlorhexidine rinses contain 11.6% alcohol as an inactive

ingredient, yet they are no more therapeutically effective than alcohol-free Paroex®. Alcohol in

oral rinses may cause a burning sensation. This can be a barrier to patient compliance, as

patients who may need to avoid alcohol may decide to not use the rinse or even decline to have

their prescriptions filled.

“Virtually every dental practice has some patients who may need to avoid alcohol, and many

more who find that alcohol-containing rinses cause a burning sensation,” said Jim Doyle,

Sunstar Americas Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Paroex® is the perfect choice for

these patients. In fact, given that alcohol-free Paroex® is therapeutically equivalent to the

alcohol-containing rinses1, we believe Paroex® is the perfect choice for all patients.”

Sunstar Americas makes Paroex® available in 16 ounce bottles and, starting in April 2015, in 4

ounce bottles that patients can take home from their dental practice. This provides yet another

way in which Paroex® can contribute to higher levels of patient compliance relative to alcohol containing rinses.

Finally, Mr. Doyle reminds us, “When in doubt, leave the alcohol out.”
