ABOUT CORSODYL 1% w/w DENTAL GEL
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.
HOW DOES CORSODYL 1% w/w DENTAL GEL WORK?
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.
