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

  • Treat and prevent gum disease
  • 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

Do not swallow.

Do not exceed the stated dose.

Toothpastes can stop Corsodyl working. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using Corsodyl. You can also use the gel at a different time of day.

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 get 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: Smear gel lightly over the fitting surfaces of the dentures before insertion; cleanse and soak the dentures in Corsodyl mouthwash for 15 minutes twice daily or as directed by your dentist.

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

If your symptoms persist, see your dentist.

Hazards and Cautions

Do not use:

  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to chlorhexidine digluconate or any of the other ingredients (see further information).
  • In children under 12 years unless recommended by a dentist.
  • Anywhere other than in your mouth. Wash thoroughly if you get any in your eyes or ears.
  • Immediately after brushing your teeth. See usage instructions for more details.

Take special care with Corsodyl:

  • Do not bleach fabrics that have been in contact with the gel.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding:

  • You can use Corsodyl if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Possible side effects:

Corsodyl can have side effects, but not everybody gets them.

  • Stop using the gel and seek immediate medical help if you get a rash, swelling of the mouth or face or have difficulty breathing. These effects may be symptoms of a severe allergic reaction which is very rare.
  • Stop using the gel and tell your dentist if you get irritation, soreness or swelling of the mouth.

Other side effects that may occur:

  • 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 gel. This usually goes away with continued use.

If you do get any side effects, even those not mentioned above, tell your doctor, dentist or pharmacist.
