Why do I have to rinse with your mouthrinse prior to my procedure?

We are having each patient rinse for 60 seconds with Peroxyl mouthrinse because it may significantly decrease the viral load in the mouth of an infected person. Hydrogen peroxide has been shown to oxidize and thereby inactivate an enveloped virus such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Peroxyl mouthrinse is available over the counter and has been well accepted by our patients! Most patients really like the taste and the fresh feeling that it leaves in the mouth. Furthermore, Peroxyl is an excellent rinse for mouth sores of any kind as it helps with the associated pain and encourages healing of oral tissue.
