Corsodyl 1% w/w Dental Gel helps you target problem areas in your mouth directly and effectively. It is an intensive treatment that is formulated to help treat serious, persistent or worsening 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 Dental Gel can be used as a short term, intensive care product for more serious gum disease, to keep your mouth clean and help return your gums to health.
Corsodyl 1% w/w Dental Gel contains 1% chlorhexidine digluconate. This highly effective antimicrobial ingredient penetrates the plaque bacteria and kills it 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.
The first thing to do if you notice a sign of gum disease is to talk to your dentist who can advise you on the best treatment options. Corsodyl 1% w/w Dental Gel is an effective short term treatment for gum problems. Use as directed by the product label/leaflet.
Corsodyl 1% w/w Dental Gel for gum disease may cause temporary discolouration of the teeth or tongue. This can be removed by twice daily brushing with toothpaste or by your dentist or hygienist. You can reduce the risk of staining by avoiding drinking tea, coffee or red wine, especially up to one hour after use.
Children under 12 years of age should not use the product unless recommended by a dentist.
