Action
Kamistad-Gel N is an oral therapeutic in gel form for the treatment of painful and inflammatory processes of the gums, the oral mucous membrane and the lips.
Due to its local anaesthetic and disinfecting properties, the oral balsam is also suitable for denture wearers for rubbing into pressure points and for the excessive sensation of a foreign body during the acclimatization period.
The special surface anaesthetic lidocaine hydrochloride contained in Kamistad-Gel N effects rapid and lasting alleviation of pain, which is particularly useful for inflammations of the oral mucous membrane and gums.
Kamistad-Gel N also contains chamomile flower extract, with the known antiphlogistic properties of this medicinal plant.
The gel base chosen for Kamistad-Gel N is very easy to spread and adheres well to the mucous membrane.
Indications/Uses
Painful inflammations of mucous membrane and lips, even in the presence of vesiculation, gingivitis and glacial erythema of the lips. For denture wearers, for rubbing into the gums and roof of the mouth at pressure points and in the event of hypersensitivity and irritation of the mucous membrane.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Unless otherwise directed, for treatment of the gums apply an approximately ½ cm ribbon of Kamistad-Gel N 3 times a day to painful or inflamed areas and massage gently. For symptoms caused by dentures, especially during the acclimatization period, rub pressure points with an approximately pea-sized piece of Kamistad-Gel N.
