Gingivitis is a serious gum problem and should not be ignored. Corsodyl 0.2% w/v Mint Mouthwash is an intensive treatment that's clinically proven to help treat the first stage of gum disease, gingivitis. As gingivitis is a serious condition that should not be ignored it's important to act fast to treat the symptoms of gingivitis, like bleeding, red or swollen gums. This can stop it from developing into the irreversible second stage of gum disease, periodontitis, which can, eventually, cause tooth loss.
If you have persistent, worsening or serious gum problems then you may require advanced treatment like Corsodyl 0.2% w/v Mouthwash. It is designed to be used as a short-term solution alongside a good daily oral care routine. Your dentist may also recommend using it to keep your mouth clean and help gums heal after dental surgery.
How does Corsodyl 0.2% w/v Mouthwash work?
Corsodyl 0.2% w/v Mouthwash contains 0.2% of the active ingredient chlorhexidine digluconate. This works to kill the plaque bacteria which can irritate the gums and cause gum disease.
The active ingredient, chlorhexidine digluconate acts rapidly, to kill the bacteria that causes plaque within 30 seconds. It also creates a protective antibacterial layer over your gums and teeth, which continues to repel bacteria for up to 12 hours after use, helping to keep your mouth clean and supporting the healing of your gums.
Directions for use:

If staining continues, it can be removed with a scale and polish from your dentist or hygienist.
