Treat gum disease

If you have gum disease, don’t worry. Corsodyl treatment mouthwashes are an effective way of treating gum disease. Corsodyl treatment mouthwashes are available in Mint, Original and Mint (alcohol free) variants. Whether you prefer to use a mouthwash, spray or gel, Corsodyl has products which contain chlorhexidine digluconate, an active ingredient which has been clinically proven to help combat the plaque bacteria which cause gum disease.

Using the Corsodyl treatment products

  • How do Corsodyl treatment products work?

    Our mouthwashes, spray and gel contain chlorhexidine digluconate. This is an active ingredient which has a dual action.

    1. It attacks and helps destroy the plaque bacteria which cause gum irritation.
    2. It creates a protective layer over your teeth and gums for up to 12 hours helping prevent the build-up of plaque.
  • What conditions can it treat?

    If you suffer from any of the following, then Corsodyl treatment products can help.

    • Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
    • Mouth ulcers
    • Oral thrush
    • Denture sore mouth
    • It can also be used to promote gum healing following dental surgery or treatment

  • How do I use Corsodyl?

    Treatment Mouthwashes

    Use twice a day. Fill the cap to 10ml line. Rinse mouth thoroughly for 1 minute then spit out.

    As some toothpastes can stop Corsodyl treatment mouthwashes from working, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using Corsodyl. You can also use the mouthwashes at a different time of day.

    To minimise the risk of staining, avoid food and drinks which contain tannins, such as tea or coffee, especially for the first hour after use.

    How long you use the mouthwash for depends on which condition you have.

    • Gum disease: Use for up to 30 days, depending on the severity of your condition. If you are unsure, please consult your dentist or pharmacist.
    • Mouth ulcers and oral thrush: Continue to use for 2 days after healing has occurred.
    • Denture sore mouth: As well as using it to rinse your mouth, you should also clean and soak your dentures in our mouthwash for 15 minutes twice daily.
    • After dental surgery or treatment: Rinse as directed by your dentist.

    If your symptoms persist, please see your dentist.

    Dental gel

    How you use our gel depends on which gum condition you have.

    • Gum disease: Brush teeth for at least one minute once or twice daily using 2 cm of gel. Continue treatment for about 1 month.
