I have used Corsodyl for years on and off as I have had loads of trouble with my gums. The last time that I was at the hygienist she gave me a row again for smoking and told me that I had a bit of inflammation in my gums and she recommended that I try this instead of the Corsodyl.
I bought it in the chemist and I paid £4.85 for it. I’d seen the bottle before but I mistakenly thought because of the white colour of the bottle it was for whitening teeth. It is actually a medicated Hydrogen Peroxide based mouth wash used to treat mouth and gum irritations and infections.
It does so by killing the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing gum infections. It also stops them from spreading.
The mouth wash inside the bottle is a blue liquid and it smells like medicated mint. You use it like you would any other mouth wash by filling the cap and then swilling it about your mouth for 2 minutes.
What makes this so different from other mouth washes is that when you swill this around your mouth it releases oxygen in the liquid and it starts to foam up in your mouth. This is really weird the first couple of times you use it but you soon get used to it. The foam works brilliantly and removing debris from in between the teeth and really cleaning in the gaps.
Unlike Corsodyl this actually tastes quite pleasant too. It is really mild and it doesn’t sting or burn like Corsodyl and it leaves your mouth feeling incredibly clean and fresh. Unlike Corsodyl it also doesn’t stain teeth so that is another thing in its favour.
I had never used Hydrogen Peroxide in a product like this before and I wasn’t sure if it would even work but it cleared up my bleeding gums in no time and made them look healthier quickly.
Since using it the first time I have become a total convert and I think it is just as good as Corsodyl but without the unpleasantness that that one has. It is much nicer to taste and it works just as well and in fact it might even work a little bit better because it really does leave your mouth feeling so clean.
Because it is a medicine there are a few warnings and some mild side effects that can happen but these are rare and no worse than with any other medicated mouthwash.
My dentist recommended using this mouthwash when my gums started bleeding a little while I brushed my teeth. You are only supposed to use it for short periods at a time.
Every year I make sure I get another bottle and use it for a bit, to stop the nasty gum bleeding coming back.
The taste is not overpowering like it can be with many mouthwashes. It has a light, delicate minty flavour, without tasting of chemicals.
Rather strangely, as I rinse it aorund my mouth the mixtures tends to become a little frothy and hard to manage, and I usually end up having to spit half of it out part way through.
If you have any mouth ulcers or splits in your gums then you will certainly "feel" the mouthwash as it moves around. There is a slight tingling sensation - nothing painful, just slightly strange at first.
After using this products your teeth and mouth in general do feel incredibly clean, and the clean feeling can become slightly addictive.
If you have gum inflammation or mouth ulcers try Colgate Antiseptic Oral Cleaner. It is really good and easy to use, all you do is pour the mouthwash into half a cap top, and rinse it round your mouth for half a minute and then spit it out. You can use it up to four times a day, after you have used it it makes your mouth feel fresh and clean. I have suffered from ulcers for a few months now, but after using this for two weeks, they have almost gone. It is very good and really works.
A few months ago I had to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. After the operation my back gums have never been the same, I suffered constantly from sore gums, and I had to avoid eating anything too salty or hard. I was browsing round Boots one day, when I spotted a product called Colgate Peroxyl. It claimed to be an antiseptic oral cleanser that treats gum inflammation and mouth ulcers. This product said that Hydrogen peroxide is an oral antiseptic, and when the Peroxyl comes into contact with the mouth tissue, oxygen is released in a pleasant bubbling action, thus it flushes out mouth debris and gets to work on oral infections. I have been using this product for about a month now, and I can vouch that it really does work, my gums do not feel as sore as they used to, and it has also cleared up most of my mouth ulcers. I started taking the mouthwash 4 times a day, but I now only use it 2 times a day, and this dose seems to be keeping things at bay. This is a great product that does exactly as it says this product is a must for anyone who suffers from gum infections. It would be especially useful for a child or adult that is having a tooth extracted that way your gums wouldn't get to the stage that mine did.
