Corsodyl 1% W/W Gum Problem Treatment Dental Gel helps you target problem areas in your mouth directly and effectively. It is an intensive treatment that is formulated to treat and prevent gum problems, such as red, swollen and bleeding gums.
It is clinically proven to help put a stop to the first stage of gum disease, gingivitis. If left untreated, this can progress to the irreversible second stage of gum disease periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss.
Corsodyl 1% W/W Gum Problem Treatment Dental Gel contains 1% Chlorhexidine Digluconate. The active ingredient, chlorhexidine digluconate acts rapidly, to kill the bacteria that cause plaque within 30 seconds. It also forms a protective antibacterial layer over the teeth and gums to prevent plaque build-up for up to 12 hours.
Toothpastes can stop Corsodyl working. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using Corsodyl. You can also use the gel at a different time of day.
Gum disease: Brush your teeth for at least one minute once or twice daily using 2 cm of gel. Continue the treatment for about one month.
Mouth ulcers & oral thrush: Apply gel directly to the sore areas using your finger tip or a cotton bud once or twice daily for at least one minute. Continue use for 2 days after healing has occurred.
Denture sore mouth: Smear gel lightly over the fitting surfaces of the dentures before insertion; cleanse and soak the dentures in Corsodyl mouthwash for 15 minutes twice daily or as directed by your dentist.
Dental surgery or tooth decay: Use as directed by your dentist.
You can use Corsodyl if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Corsodyl can have side effects, but not everybody gets them. Stop using the gel and seek immediate medical help if you get a rash, swelling of the mouth or face or have difficulty breathing. These effects may be symptoms of a severe allergic reaction which is very rare. Stop using the gel and tell your dentist if you get irritation, soreness or swelling of the mouth.
