The active ingredient of Corsodyl Mouthwash is chlorhexidine digluconate which is an antibacterial agent that reduces the formation of dental plaque.
It is used to:
- Treats & prevent gum disease (where gums may bleed when brushed)
- Promotes gum healing after dental surgery or treatment
- Controls mouth ulcers
- Maintains mouth hygiene
- Manage oral thrush & denture sore mouth
How to use
Use only if seal on cap is present and intact before opening.
Use twice a day. Fill the cap to 10ml line. Rinse mouth thoroughly for 1 minute then spit out.
Gum disease: A one month course (600ml) is recommended.
Mouth ulcers & oral thrush: Continue to use for 2 days after healing has occurred.
Denture sore mouth: Clean & soak your dentures in Corsodyl for 15 minutes twice a day.
Dental Surgery: Rinse as directed by your dentist
Do not swallow and do not use more mouthwash than the label tells you to.
Toothpastes can stop Corsodyl from working. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using Corsodyl. You can also use the mouthwash at a different time of day.
Hazards and Cautions
- Temporary staining of the tongue. This disappears when treatment is stopped
- Temporary staining of the teeth. This can normally be removed by brushing. You can avoid staining by not drinking tea, coffee or red wine - especially one hour after use, and by brushing daily with toothpaste (see usage instructions.) If staining continues it can be removed with a scale and polish from your dentist or hygienist. You can clean your dentures with denture cleaners
- You may notice a change of taste or burning sensation when you first use the mouthwash. This usually goes away with continued use.
- If peeling of the skin inside the mouth occurs, dilute Corsodyl with an equal amount of water
