Corsodyl have a range of products to help treat gum disease if you have it, and protect your gums if you don't. Gum disease is a common problem, yet there are a large amount of people that don't know they have it, or ignore symptoms when they arise. Therefore it is important to recognise the signs of gum disease and know what to do if you encounter them. Spitting blood when brushing your teeth could be an early sign of gum disease. Gum disease is caused by plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that builds up on and around your teeth. If plaque is left to build up, it will irritate the gums and cause redness & soreness, and eventually your gum will come away from the tooth and teeth can become loose.
There are two main types of gum disease, gingivitis & periodontitis. Gingivitis is when your gums become inflamed, they become red, swollen and may bleed when you brush. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis. Periodontitis is when the plaque builds up and destroys the gums tissue and the bones that hold the teeth, causing them to become loose. Eventually the teeth will have to be removed. All of Corsodyl products contain chlorhexidine, which is clinically proven to fight plaque, so if you think you may have signs of gum disease, or if you want to ensure your gums stay healthy, then Corsodyl products can help treat & prevent gum disease.
