An ideal gel/toothpaste containing NO sodium lauryl sulphate ("SLS"). Recommended where the patient is using chlorhexidine mouthwashes. Chlorhexidine will adhere to the patient's gums and teeth for up to 12 hours doing its job. SLS is a detergent-like substance which washes the chlorhexidine away - something we definitely do not want to happen. SLS is an ingredient in most commonly available toothpastes.
SLS is also often associated with the formation of apthus ulcers.
