Corsodyl celebrates 40 years of clinical evidence

Untitled-1GSK, manufacturer of Corsodyl mouthwash, is celebrating the anniversary of the first clinical evidence for dental application of the chlorhexidine digluconate formulation.

Corsodyl can be recommended for a range of dental treatment needs including:

  • Treating gingivitis
  • Supporting oral health in compromised patients – where toothbrushing cannot be adequately employed
  • Supporting effective gum healing after surgery
  • Helping to resolve denture stomatitis
  • Helping to aid to healing in acute candidiasis.

A double positive charged molecule

According to GSK, this is why Corsodyl remains the most recommended medicated mouthwash by dental experts in the UK. Corsodyl mouthwash has a proven heritage in treating gum problems.

Chlorhexidine digluconate is a double positive charged molecule enabling it to bind to negatively charged surfaces including teeth, mucous membranes and bacteria.

Around the clock protection

Once on the surface, chlorhexidine repels bacteria by creating a protective shield over the teeth and gums. This substantivity means chlorhexidine is available for up to 12 hours post-rinsing for around the clock protection against bacteria.

Corsodyl toothpaste and Corsodyl treatment mouthwash are ideal partners against gum disease. Studies show that sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) may inactivate chlorhexidine. Corsodyl toothpaste is SLS-free, making it suitable for use with Corsodyl treatment mouthwash. References are available. Please visit for more information.
