Corsodyl Daily Gum and Tooth Paste
Advantages: It leaves my teeth feeling clean and my breath fresh
Disadvantages: The awful sour salty taste
I always use mouth wash regularly and one of my favourites is Corsodyl so when I received a money off coupon for Corsodyl Daily gum and tooth paste I decided to give it a try. At £4.50 for a 75ml tube there's no way I would have tried it without a coupon. As it happens Tesco currently have this on offer for £2.99 so with my coupon I only actually paid 99p which would be less painful if I hated it.
Corsodly gum and toothpaste is sold in a green and white tube with a screw top lid. It has Corsodyl Daily written across the front of the tube, below this is a little picture of some leaves and says 6 plant extracts. The front of the tube also tells the customer that this tooth and gum paste nurtures gums, fortifies teeth, will effectively reduce plaque, give daily cavity protection, has an antibacterial action and is clinically proven.
The back of the tube gives all the usual information such as ingredients and instructions for use, it also gives a little bit of information about the paste.
Corsodyl have developed a clinically proven paste that will help maintain healthy tight gums preventing plaque and bacteria to build up which can ultimately loosen your teeth. What makes this different is that it contains a combination of 6 plant extracts, myrrh, sage, rhatany, camomile, echinacea and peppermint, it also contains mineral salts and has a strange taste that will take a few weeks to get used to, how right they are!!
The instructions for use are the same as any toothpaste with children of 6 years and younger using a pea sized amount of the paste, to be honest I couldn't imagine a child using this but I may be wrong.
The tube also advises not to use the toothpaste if the little foil seal is broken.
On opening the tube I was surprised to see the colour of the paste is actually a dirty pink, a bit like an old piece of chewing gum, it has a slightly gritty/sandy feeling when I rubbed a little bit between my fingers and despite all the strange ingredients smelt surprisingly minty. I squeezed some on my toothbrush and brushed my teeth.
To say Corsodyl gum and toothpaste has a strange taste is an almighty understatement, I have never tasted anything like it. It is so salty and incredibly sour in fact it took all my will power to actually brush for the required 2 minuets. It really is disgusting and made me feel a bit sick. However I have to say after I had finished cleaning my teeth my mouth and breath felt and tasted surprisingly minty and fresh. My teeth also felt really clean and smooth.
Since being pregnant I have occasionally had a sore piece of gum that has bled when I've brushed, after using this paste for just over a week I have noticed that it has been considerably better, in fact my teeth and gums are looking and feeling nice and healthy.
I am in 2 minds as to whether I would recommend Corsodyl gum and toothpaste, it undoubtedly cleans very well and leaves my breath and mouth feeling really fresh, clean and healthy but it tastes so bad I have struggled to use it. My husband refuses to use it at all so I have the rest of the tube to finish myself. To be honest unless the taste changes then I wont be buying this anymore.
Summary: Its hard to stomach
