When using Corsodyl may cause discolouration of the tongue and teeth, but this is not permanent and disappears after treatment is stopped. Tooth staining can largely be prevented by: Brushing daily with a conventional toothpaste and rinsing thoroughly with water, before using Corsodyl. Avoiding tannin-containing food and drinks (e.g. tea, coffee, red wine) for at least one hour after using Corsodyl. However in some cases, a simple scale and polish by your dentist or hygienist may be necessary to remove the discolouration completely. Dentures may be cleaned with conventional denture cleaner.
