Advantages: keeps gums healthy and tight
Disadvantages: it takes absolutely awful
I picked up corsodyl daily because I have a slight bleeding gum issue and didn't find that any other toothpaste I tried helped with that. Corsodyl however, is designed to clean your teeth and nurture your gums.
This product is expensive at £4.95 for a tube of 75ml toothpaste but I think that's a small price to pay to keep your teeth. The packaging is an attractive green and white.
The toothpaste states it will nurture gums, fortify your teeth, reduce plaque, protect against cavities has antibacterial action and is clinically proven to work. It contains 6 plant extracts therefore, has a pretty leaf design on the front of the tube. The plant extracts include peppermint as you will find in most toothpastes but also echinacea, camomile, Rhatany, Sage and Myrrh. This is is a departure from any other toothpaste I have ever used and I think this may be what gives Corsodyl daily its aherm, distinctive taste. It also contains Sodium Bicarbonate, which if you have used to clean your teeth before you will know doesn't taste great but gets your teeth sparkly white.
Like your average toothpaste Corsodyl daily should be used twice daily.
Now there is no getting around it Corsodyl daily tastes and looks pretty vile. Its pink and gritty in appearance not like your average toothpaste at all so this might be the first thing that takes you by surprise. The next thing that will shock you is the taste. Its bitter. I do imagine it might be what eating a houseplant with a bicarb chaser might feel like. You can taste the peppermint but the bitter plant/bicarb taste over rides it initially. There is no doubt about it this toothpaste will make your taste buds flee in horror.
Strangely, I think my taste buds have indeed found a place to hide because now that I am used to this bizarre toothpaste which I have been using for more than 6 months I have found that I am not quite as shocked, stunned and disgusted by the taste as I was initially and can use it without much difficulty.
You can taste the peppermint after using but its not incredibly over powering. There isn't an unpleasant aftertaste. After using your mouth just feels mildly minty fresh. This for me is a bonus as I don't like everything I eat for tasting of mint 3 hours after I have brushed my teeth.
I find that corsodyl gets my teeth clean as well as your average whitening toothpaste.
In conjunction with the mouth wash (which also tastes pretty nasty) I find that it stops my bleeding gums problem and helps keep them healthy.
I would recommend using this toothpaste if you have gum problems I think a few moments of upsetting your taste buds and shelling out that little bit extra cash is well worth keeping your gums healthy and tight to support your gnashers.
Summary: keeps your teeth and gums healthy which is the main thing
