Each 100g Corsofresh Dental Gel contains 1g Chlorhexidine Gluconate (0.1% w/w).

Mechanism of action: 

It is effective against a wide range of gram negative and gram positive bacteria, yeasts, dermatophyte fungi and lipophilic viruses.

Chlorhexidine is active against a wide range of important oral pathogens and is therefore effective in the treatment of many common dental conditions.


Because of its cationic nature, chlorhexidine bonds strongly to skin, mucosa and other tissues and is thus very poorly absorbed.


Chlorhexidine used for:

  • Inhibition of formation of dental plaque.
  • As an aid in the treatment and prevention of gingivitis.
  • As an aid to maintaining oral hygiene particularly in situations where tooth brushing cannot be adequately employed (e.g. following oral surgery, in mentally or physically handicapped patients).
  • For use in a post-peridontal surgery or treatment regimen to promote gingival healing.
  • It is useful in the management of recurrent aphthous ulceration.
  • It is useful in the management of oral candidal infections (e.g. denture stomatitis and thrush).
  • As an aid in the prevention of dental caries in high-caries-risk patients (for example xerostomia sufferers), when used in a regimen as an adjunct to fluoride.


Dental Gel:


- Brush the teeth thoroughly with one inch of gel on a moistened toothbrush, once or twice daily for about one minute.

- For the treatment of gingivitis, a course of about one month is advisable.

- When used for the management of aphthous ulceration and oral candidal infections an alternative method of delivery may be required which facilitates application of the gel to affected areas. This should be used once or twice daily for about one minute. The length of treatment time should be decided on the basis of clinical response.

- When used as part of a regimen to prevent dental caries the gel should be applied for 5 minutes nightly for 14 days. This treatment should be repeated every 3-4 months or as directed by the dentist. When used as part of a regimen to prevent dental caries of remaining teeth in denture wearers the gel may be applied to the fitting surface of the denture before insertion.

- During the treatment of denture stomatitis, thoroughly brush all over the dentures with 2.5cm of gel on a moistened toothbrush, once or twice daily for about one minute.
