Baikadent®gel, OTC drug
Baikadent® is a gel for application to gums in case of periodontal diseases. Use of the preparation improves condition of gums.
It is assumed that anti-inflammatory effects are based on inhibition of synthesis of cell mediators of inflammatory states (interleukin IL-1ß , leucotriens, prostaglandins) and stimulation of fibroblast activity in gum cells. Besides, flavonoid complex is characterized by anti-bacterial activity (mainly with regard to Gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus mutans and other pathogenic bacteria, e.g. Prevotella intermedia, previously Bacteroides melaninogenicus intermedius, isolated from the mouth of patients suffering from chronic inflammatory states of the mouth) as well as anti-fungal (especially with regard to Candida albicans).
Indications for application:
- in supportive treatment of superficial and deep periodontopathies
- in prophylaxis of periodontal diseases
- in chronic inflammatory states of mouth mucosa (also those caused by dentures)
How to apply Baikadent®
2-4 times a day, directly after brushing teeth, rub about 2 cm of gel into changed places in the mouth and do not take food or drink for at least 30 minutes afterwards.
It is recommended to systematically use the preparation for the period of 2 weeks in case of chronic inflammatory states of mouth mucosa. If, after this period, inflammation symptoms do not withdraw, consult a physician.
