Corsodyl short-term treatment
Not all chlorhexidine formulations are the same
In a 5-week randomised study, Corsodyl 0.2% w/v Mouthwash was more effective at inhibiting plaque growth when compared with another commercial 0.2% chlorhexidine solution with an anti-staining agent.5
After 4 days of treatment:5
- 73% reduction in plaque with Corsodyl 0.2% vs. 37% with comparator*5
- 78% reduction in biofilm vitality with Corsodyl 0.2% vs. 26% with comparator*5
Images show the vitality of the plaque biofilm after 4 days of treatment determined using an image analysis program to discriminate green (vital) bacteria, yellow (vital and dead) bacteria and red (dead) bacteria5*Mean values and statistical comparison between placebo and two chlorohexidine solutions in terms of plaque index, plaque area and biofilm vitality
Why avoiding anionic interactions when using Corsodyl can help
Chlorhexidine is incompatible with anionic agents
Often present in conventional toothpastes, anionic agents interact with chlorhexidine.7,8 Toothpastes with anionic agents should therefore be used before Corsodyl Short-Term Intensive Treatment (rinsing the mouth between applications) or at a different time of day.
