Dentists have insisted they’ll continue to use hydrogen peroxide until more research is completed on cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) mouthwashes.
They’ll be advising their patients to continue using their mouthwashes as normal, and they shouldn’t consider visiting the dentist as a type of COVID treatment, warned Hermes Dental Clinic London’s practice owner, Dr Parneet Sehmi.
Dr Sehmi told Express.co.uk: “In response to the recent report and statistics published, we need to react with caution and not create too much ‘hype’.
“The findings are only preliminary, and a full clinical and robust investigation needs to take place to validate this early research. I am very interested to see what this looks like.
