Hi everyone!

Just a quick question:

How soon after an extraction of a lower right molar can I used my usual chlorhexidine mouthwash? (I use the brand called Corsodyl)

I had my tooth extracted on 18th December, and it is now the 10th day following extraction. I have been rinsing 3 times a day with saltwater, as directed, but I would like to return to my normal routine of using mouthwash as soon as possible.

Many thanks

Bexr
