Corsodyl Gum + Breath & Sensitivity – Stannous Fluoride and Zinc science

Stannous fluoride and zinc molecules in Corsodyl toothpaste

Supporting you to enhance your patients’ clean

We know that a regular brushing combined with flossing are the foundation for good gum health, and that there’s no substitute for the mechanical clean in-clinic.

Preventing gum disease at home requires a strict daily routine, but that’s easier said than done for a lot of patients: many find it difficult to stick to a good routine every day.

Small changes – such as changing to a specialist gum health toothpaste – can help.

Corsodyl Gum + Breath & Sensitivity has a unique formulation, containing stannous fluoride and zinc, to work in partnership with you, helping to enhance your patients’ daily clean*.

Patient motivation and behaviours

Patient insights drawn from our Usage & Attitude study (U&A) explore patient motivations and behaviours in addressing their gingival health issues and additional oral health concerns.1

Different people need different approaches, both in empathy and motivation.1

For illustrative purposes, we have developed some patient profiles to help you better encourage behaviour change and select the most suitable oral health product for each individual.

    The unsure patient

    Some patients are aware they have oral health issues but may be too self-conscious or embarrassed to open a conversation with you – for example, about malodour. They are motivated to change their oral care habits but often don’t know how.1

    Simply reassuring them that there is a solution may be sufficient to help them make changes to their oral health routine.1

    Recommending a specialist toothpaste – such as Corsodyl Gum + Breath & Sensitivity – could be the starting point for a more in-depth conversation about ways to improve their gingival health care.

    See how the unique formulation, containing stannous fluoride and zinc, works and what this could mean for these patients.

    The naïve patient

    Some patients are unaware that they have early signs of potential gum disease.

    Although they may notice bleeding when they brush, they do not see this as a worry and believe their oral health is good.1

    You can help these patients understand the significance of the symptoms they are already experiencing. They may also benefit from a specialist gum health toothpaste, like Corsodyl.

Corsodyl Gum + Breath & Sensitivity: a unique formulation containing stannous fluoride and zinc

Stannous fluoride & zinc works in three ways to support you and help your patients enhance their brushing efforts, for their gingival health, malodour protection and to help protect their sensitive teeth.

Its unique formulation contains stannous fluoride:

1. Clinically proven to enhance plaque removal* and help prevent gum problems2

  • Inhibits regrowth of plaque bacteria
  • By disrupting their metabolic activity
  • Thus, limiting their viability

2. Clinically proven to help protect sensitive teeth

It also contains zinc:

3. Helps to freshen patients’ breath3,4

  • Zinc ions attach to plaque bacteria
  • Creating a layer that binds to malodorous sulfur compounds
  • Neutralising them to freshen breath
  • Clinical Outcomes: Gingival Health
