Corsodyl 1% w/w dental gel is used both in the intensive treatment and the prevention of the early signs of gum disease.

The active ingredient is chlorhexidine digluconate which is an antibacterial agent that reduces the formation of dental plaque and is used to:

  • Treat and prevent gum disease;(gums may bleed when brushed)
  • Maintain mouth hygiene
  • Promote gum healing after dental surgery or treatment
  • Control recurring mouth ulcers
  • Manage denture sore mouth and recurring oral thrush
  • Prevent cavities for those at high risk of tooth decay

How to Use

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

Mouth ulcers and 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: Thoroughly brush all over dentures with 2.5 cm of gel on a moistened toothbrush, once or twice daily for about one month.

Dental surgery or tooth decay: Use as directed by your dentist.
