Corsodyl Mouthwash 300ml is on a 3 for 2 offer in boots (includes other corsodyl products). The Mouthwash is £3.65 each but if you buy 3, that makes £2.43 each. Normally this Mouthwash sells at £4+

This is online and in store.

Misleading, please fix the title to include need for multibuy.

Home Bargains have this for £2.99 I think but they also have a cheaper identical alternative at £1.99 (going from memory, perhaps someone can confirm?)

PS Chlorhexidine is the active ingredient, same concentration in both. It is a very effective anti bacterial mouthwash which will protect your gums, if you can't brush for example. But it will stain your teeth a bit if you use it all the time.

Yes they do, the cheaper one, I mean. I use it regularly. (brushing your teeth before using it will help prevent the staining)

very misleading indeed. What's the chance you will use 3 bottles? Give it to someone else? not many people uses corsodyl I'm afraid. Last time I used corsodyl was last year after gum treatment. You don't need to use it daily as well you just need to apply it when you have bloody gums for healing. I still have some remaining in the bottle after a year.

Buying multi items will just be a waste of money and actually you may spend more money then you would need to.

That stuff really makes your teeth go brown though

That stuff really makes your teeth go brown though



Yes, Oraldene is a good alternative to this. Oraldene doesn't stain your teeth but has the same effect (different active ingredient I believe)

My dentist told me never to use this because of the staining it would cause. He said a warm saline solution is just as effective.

dentist advised me not to use for longer than two weeks

Agree about the staining - just had to stop using it. My teeth looked so brown and disgusting

The staining isn't permanent and affects some people more than others. It is not a good idea to use fluoride toothpaste at the same time as it inhibits the effect. Brush at a different time of day and don't use it for extended periods and you will be fine.

Agree but I looked into several medical studies, all of which showed the active in Ingredient in Corsodyl is much more effective and for much longer. The daily version doesn't stain teeth anywhere as much but it's a lot weaker.

I'd say using full strength Corsodyl twice a week does a pretty good job for gum problems.

If you want something that kills bacteria and makes your teeth look really white then look for MMS / sodium chlorite but ignore the rubbish on Wikipedia and go to youTube where you have living people that talk about this infront of a camera not just anonymous people on Wikipedia.

not a good idea to use a fluoride toothpaste at the same time? Absolute BS. Nowhere in the dental world is that reported that fluoride inhibits Chlorhexidiene, some of the daily versions include fluoride. Its fine to use.

This Corsadyl is not for long term daily use, if you have underlying issues you need to get them treated.

This will ease your discomfort until you receive treatment from a dental specialist.

I thought you needed to wait 5 mins or it stopped it working ? (It tastes awful so the last thing I ever want to do is use it for any longer than totally necessary).

Obvious thing you would think would happen is the fluoride would displace the chloride. (I only know what it says on the bottle thought that was likely the reason).

Bottle doesn't explain the exact reason, but it does say that the active ingredient in some toothpastes will inhibit the effect of the Corsodyl and that you should not brush your teeth too soon before using the mouthwash.

B&M do another make (Ecolabs) for £1.59. Same active ingredient as Corsydyl for exactly the same size of bottle. In fact the bottle looks suspiciously similar to the Corsodyl bottle.

That is the exact same for any other toothpaste you should never rinse straight after brushing. There are many different types of fluoride, and as you said it doesnt elude to anything so its perfectly fine to use all fluoride toothpastes with this.

My wife is a dental hygienist and she says that mouthwash is very ineffective compared to dental floss. Floss is also much much cheaper and that's why you never see it advertised

It i s suggested thatChlorhexidine is neutralized by common toothpaste additives such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP). Although data are limited, to maximize effectiveness it may be best to keep a 30-minute to 2-hour interval between brushing and using the mouthwash

Kolahi, J; Soolari, A (2006). "Rinsing with chlorhexidine gluconate solution after brushing and flossing teeth: A systematic review of effectiveness". Quintessence international 37 (8): 605–12. PMID 16922019.

Of course, some people have got bigger mouths than others so you should bear this in mind too

Oh, and this is DIRECT from Corsodyl's own website for the benefit of asol9791 ...

''As toothpastes can stop Corsodyl treatment mouthwashes from working, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 5 minutes after brushing your teeth before using Corsodyl. You can also use the mouthwashes at a different time of day.

To minimise the risk of staining, avoid food and drinks which contain tannins, such as tea, coffee or red wine, especially for the first hour after use.

sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP) - can you point out to me which one of these is fluoride?
Here is a more recent article:
The Combined Use of Chlorhexidine and Fluoride Therapy Can Reduce the Risk for Dental Caries

Given your excerpt from the Corsodyl website itself, again it doesnt state anywhere that fluoride should be avoided at all, and merely states waiting 5 minutes before using after brushing.

waiting upto 2 hours before using mouthwash is commonplace for the use of all mouthwashes. If you are now saying that some substances might inhibit Corsodyl, fine, but you didnt state that initially. You said Fluoride, which is unfounded from your own posted information. My case and point is that you were incorrect to state what you did about fluoride - for which i am correct. Thank you and goodnight.

Regardless of the debate its a good deal, have some heat OP

Your still wrong it clearly states on the bottle your best using at different times to brushing your teeth to aid it working fully. Get your facts right and stop preaching

may stain your teeth but I had a small absess a while ago and it was an absolute godsend. This stuff really works. Worth every penny even if £10 a bottle. using the daily stuff now just to stay loyal to the stuff.

I haven't contested that, I have actually said you should brush at a different time to mouthwash, so before you try and get all superior you should read what has been said. The point was about not using fluoride toothpastes. Listen to your own advice.
