How To Remove "Red Complex" After SRP ?

Patients who report with the chief complaint of bleeding gums are usually treated easily. A few cases may just don't respond. So What could be the best measure to stop the gingival bleeding?
Use Chlorhexidine (CHX) chips immediately after SRP. A recent study suggests that placing CHX chips is very effective in reducing the "red complex". Red Complex is the group of oral microorganisms chiefly responsible for bleeding. Clinical Attachment Levels also improve twice as much as those in controls.
