What is Gengigel Gingival Gel?
Gengigel is a powerful gel that treats oral conditions such as gingivitis, gum disease, and mouth ulcers. It helps to protect your gums, preventing bleeding and easing discomfort in your mouth as your gums heal.
Who is Gengigel suitable for?
Gengigel gel is perfect for adults and children over the age of 3 who are suffering with gum disease or gingivitis. If you are suffering with discomfort in your mouth, especially when you eat and drink, Gengigel can help to ease irritation as it protects your gums.
What is gingivitis?
Gingivitis is then name of the early form of gum disease, and it’s a common condition that most people will suffer with at least once in their lives. Gingivitis can be treated easily and effectively, but if you leave it untreated it can develop into another condition called periodontitis, which affects the tissues that hold your teeth in place and could lead to your teeth falling out. If you have gingivitis, you may notice symptoms such as:
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums then brushing your teeth
- Infection in the gums
Can this product be used to ease other conditions?
Although Gengigel is an ideal treatment for gingivitis, it can be used to ease other oral conditions, such as:
- Mouth ulcers
- Receding gums
- Gum trauma caused by surgery
- Oral lichen planus
How will Gengigel work to protect my gums?
Gengigel works to protect your gums by forming a protective barrier wherever it’s applied. This barrier protects from bacteria and saliva, keeping your sore or infected gums safe from further irritation and allowing them to heal.
Is Gengigel suitable for someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?
Gengigel is safe to use during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using any medication during pregnancy or breastfeeding, to be sure that the product is safe for both you and your baby.
Can it be used with other medication?
Gengigel should not be used with some other medications as they can interact, causing unwanted effects or making your medication less effective. Gengigel should not be used at the same time as products that contain chlorhexidine (e.g. Corsodyl mouthwash), as chlorhexidine will stop this product from working. If you are using any other medications, including those bought without prescription, speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this product to make sure that the two will not interact.
Can I eat after using this product?
Gengigel stays on the gum for around 30 minutes after application, so you should not eat or drink until at least 30 minutes after using this product. If you want to use this product to ease discomfort when you eat, make sure to plan to apply this product at least 30 minutes before meal times.
How to use Gengigel Gel
