Corsodyl toothpaste just £1.98 at Superdrug (was £3.99).

My hygienist recommended Corsodyl toothpaste: tastes weird at first and it's rather expensive but apparently it's good for my gums!

I was shocked by the price (around £4 for a 75ml tube) so I keep a look out for deals. Saw it for £2.99 in Savers this week so grabbed 2 tubes only to find it's currently £2.49 in Boots and just £1.98 in Superdrug! (Savers did give me a Corsodyl toothbrush though - one per customer so I should have bought the toothpaste one at a time!).

If you use this or want to try it (give yourself a few days to get used to the taste!) this would be a good time to grab a few.

I don't know how long Superdrug offers last.

Says out of stock to order on line but plenty on the shelves in my local store in a variety of types.

PS Don't make the mistake I did and start using Corsodyl mouthwash too. It stained my teeth badly and required an expensive and uncomfortable half hour with the hygienist to remove it. Apparently this is a well known issue and it's mentioned in the small print which no one reads. In fact hygienist and dentist have both said not to use any mouthwash: at best it's ineffective and many of them stain eventually (though not as badly as Corsodyl). None of the staff at my dental surgery use mouthwash - there's another saving for you!

Plenty in store - in a variety of types.

This doesn't taste great, so be prepared to spit it out sooner than normal paste.

Been using this for few years going to buy box of them haha Thanks!

As I indicated - but you do get used to the salty taste. If I use other toothpaste now it tastes very sweet.

I recently tried this as was on offer at Tescos, the wife and myself were almost sick it’s so disgusting. Went straight in the bin.

Yes, it is a shock the first time as it's salty - not sickening though just not what you're expecting. If you persist with it for a few days (maybe a bit longer) it gradually becomes 'normal'. Worth the effort to gain the benefit; I need to look after the teeth I've got left and this is proven effective as many teeth are lost due to gum disease.

Does this contain chlorhexadine?

No. That's the ingredient in the mouthwash which stains teeth; it's not in the toothpaste. After finding out the hard way I made sure it wasn't in the toothpaste!

It's also the ingredient that makes it so effective! Wonder if it's actually any different to normal fluoridated toothpaste.

What about Gengigel mouthwash and Sensodyne mouthwash?

Like I said, the professionals at my surgery said they don't use any - they range from ineffective (most) to damaging (original Corsodyl).

Yes, it is proven effective, albeit with different active ingredient(s) for use twice daily. The way it was put to me is that Corsodyl mouthwash (the original type with chlorhexadine) should be regarded as a medication (typically for use after dental surgery) rather than as a regular use mouthwash.

I had a long chat with the hygienist after my recent episode. Advice was to use Corsodyl toothpaste on an Oral B electric toothbrush (basic 3D one, eg model 600); no mouthwash and don't bother with those 'water pic' type things which they said are a waste of money too. Floss or interdental brushes are still important though.

Maybe they should have suggested the frown gets less severe with extended use?

Anyway, After using it for about 6 months it's entirely normal tasting to me now.

I had a similar conversation with my dentist - mouthwash is a waste of time. It does not get below the gum line like they say in the adverts, any with alcohol in dries your mouth which can cause bad breath if your mouth gets hydrated. Whitening toothpastes legally cannot contain a strong enough "bleach" to whiten your teeth so they are also a waste of time.

Yep - it appears that there is a lot of misinformation around regarding mouthwash. The manufacturers imply all sorts of benefits but have enough weasel words in the small print to get away with it. After all a whole industry has built up around this pointless product. My dentist even went as far as to say that anything with an alcohol basis is potentially adding to the risk of mouth cancers (presumably much less than drinking alcohol but nevertheless better avoided since it's not beneficial).

Thanks Besford . I have bought some and have to admit feeling a bit apprehensive after reading the comments on here, expecting to spit it out almost immediately, but I don't actually mind it. Heat added.

Still plenty of stock on the shelves yesterday (Redditch - Tuesday 5th).
