Corsodyl 1% w/w Dental Gel is specifically crafted for focused and effective treatment of problematic areas in the mouth. This robust gel not only treats and prevents gum issues like swelling, redness, or bleeding, but it is also used in managing oral thrush. Its formula is designed for intensive care, directly targeting the affected areas.
The gel has been clinically proven to effectively combat the initial stage of gum disease, gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe and irreversible stage of gum disease, which may result in tooth loss. The inclusion of treatment for oral thrush adds another layer of therapeutic benefit, making Corsodyl Dental Gel a comprehensive solution for oral health problems.
How to use
For Treating Gum Disease:
- Twice daily, brush your teeth for a minimum of one minute using a 2cm strip of the gel. Generally, continue this treatment for about a month or follow your dentist's advice.
For Mouth Ulcers and Oral Thrush:
- Directly apply the gel to the affected areas. You can use your fingertip or a cotton bud for application. Do this once or twice daily, ensuring the gel is in contact with the sore area for at least one minute each time.
For Denture-Related Sore Mouth:
- Lightly coat the fitting surfaces of your dentures with the gel before putting them in. Additionally, for thorough care, cleanse and soak the dentures in Corsodyl Treatment Mouthwash. Do this for 15 minutes twice daily or as per your dentist's instructions.
Post Dental Surgery or in Cases of Tooth Decay:
- Use the gel as per the specific directions given by your dentist.
These directions are tailored to address different oral health issues effectively, ensuring targeted treatment and relief.
