Corsodyl Daily Defence
Advantages: Protects teeth from bacteria. You can feel it working for hours on end.
Disadvantages: Nasty after taste
I started using Corsodyl daily after my dentist recommended me to use it. I had a mild case of gum disease that I had managed to get rid of, although my dentist informed me of using Corsodyl Daily to maintain my oral hygiene. My dentist also told me my teeth would stop bleeding slowly overtime but that Corsodyl daily would speed up this process, by killing off bacteria in and around my teeth and gums. Luckily my stepfather works as an assistant at the dentist's so I managed to get a few bottles of this for free. I was scared to take it at first. A few friends I know had some in the past and told me it tasted terrible (Not as bad as Corsodyl, the non daily variant though) so I braced myself for the horrible taste.
Consumption of the liquid is straight forward. Pour 10ml in the provided cup once, or twice daily after brushing and leave in the mouth for 30 seconds, remembering NOT to rinse your mouth out afterwards. Rinsing your mouth out is more than likely to remove some of the Corsodyl layer that will remain on your teeth. The initial taste whilst its in your mouth isn't too bad if I'm being honest. Quite minty and fresh and you can feel a slight burning sensation. After a few minutes though that taste wears off and your left with a pretty nasty metallic taste in the mouth, although one's breath will still smell fresh.
For the first few days my gums would still bleed after brushing my teeth and I did feel like it wasn't working. After a week though I noticed my mouth feeling generally fresher than when I just brushed my teeth with toothpaste. It also felt better than using Listerine, which I used to take all the time. I also noticed that my gums stopped bleeding as much. This happened much quicker than the dentist estimated (2-3 weeks) which is a clear indication of how good this stuff really is. I have tried the Corsodyl toothpaste but it tasted horrible and I spat it out straight away. It would be nice to see the combined effects of both products at work so I shall try it again and will probably review it on here once I've used it for a few days.
I have also tried Corsodyl Daily alcohol free and must say my experiences with it have been far from pleasant. Firstly I noticed that my breath would sometimes smell worse AFTER using the alcohol free version. I could taste an almost onion/garlic taste in my mouth, but I put this down to a possible bad batch so rather than receiving a free one from my step dad, I went out and purchased it online from Amazon UK for £3.50. Once again, to my disappointment it worked for about 10 minutes then the horrible breath/taste came back. Even my girlfriend noticed this, so I have decided to stay WELL CLEAR of any alcohol free Corsodyl products. I have continued to use the minty version and it still works as good as it did when I first started using it.
I would (and have) recommended this product to a lot of my friends. I would (If you can) avoid the alcohol free version unless it is totally necessary.
Summary: Bar the horrible after taste, this is a great oral hygiene product
