  • 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.

  • Tips to avoid staining


    Simple recommendations to help avoid staining

    To minimise the risk of staining after using chlorhexidine mouthwashes, advise patients to avoid tannin-containing food and drinks.
