Why is Corsodyl the No.1 dentist recommended treatment mouthwash?1

Corsodyl mouthwash, with its active ingredient chlorhexidine, has been used and trusted by healthcare professionals for decades. Dentists know they can rely on its tried and tested formulation to help inhibit plaque build-up, treat gingivitis and protect their patients’ gums.

There’s nothing stronger for the treatment of gingivitis*. That’s why dentists recommend it more than 20 million times every year.ⴕ2

chlorhexidine formulations

Not all chlorhexidine formulations are the same

To ensure effectiveness, the proven antibacterial formulation of Corsodyl Treatment Mouthwash has been specifically engineered to leave out additives that might impact the efficacy of its active ingredient, chlorhexidine.3,4

Additives such as sodium fluoride, sodium citrate, sorbitol and CPC, which are used in some mouthwashes, deactivate or limit the efficacy of chlorhexidine.5

Chlorhexidine action

Fast, effective treatment of gum disease

Chlorhexidine digluconate acts rapidly, killing the bacteria that cause plaque in 30 seconds6,7
