Pharmacology and pharmacodynamics

The drug has a local analgesic, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant effect.

stomatitis The gel facilitates the appearance of temporary and permanent teeth. The gel eliminates the pain syndrome, reduces the risk of irritation of the gums and the appearance of stomatitis.

Lidocaine hydrochloride causes blockade of sodium channels, as a result of which the conduction of the pain signal on the nerve fibers is inhibited, and as a result, the local anesthetic effect develops. Polydocanol has analgesic effect.

Tincture of chamomile flowers has anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and antimicrobial effect.

Pharmaceutical is contraindicated for individual intolerance to chamomile, other comorbid, lidocaine hydrochloride or other analgesic agents close in chemical structure, as well as other ingredients contained in the medicine.

The gel contains sorbitol, therefore it is contraindicated in patients suffering from congenital intolerance to fructose.

Caution is necessary to apply the gel for the treatment of young patients under the age of one year.

About the age of small patients

Gel Dentinox is approved for use in anesthesia for children over 1 year old, in children younger than this age it is possible to use the drug at the doctor's permission.

But still, this gel is not a drug of choice for young children, because due to the content of lidocaine there will be complete numbness of the mucosa and tongue, excessive salivation, which can lead to a violation of the swallowing act and increase the risk of infecting saliva in infants.

In addition, increased salivation may cause skin irritation. Also, when the tongue and lips are numb, there is a high probability that the baby will bite them.

Since the gel is prescribed solely for the removal of the pain syndrome in the eruption of the first milk teeth, there is no data on the use of medication in women during the period of gestation and lactation.

Treatment regimen of

If no other indication is given by the physician, the gel should be applied 2-3 times a day, preferably after meals and overnight. It can be applied on the Dentinox gel impurities throughout the entire period of teething.

To do this, first, dry the inflamed area with a gauze swab, then squeeze a small amount of the pharmaceutical preparation( the size of a pea) onto a clean finger or a cotton swab and apply a slightly rubbing on the sore spot.

Avoid contact with eyes. If you forget to apply the gel, it is inadmissible to apply a double dose of the drug to the following application.

Do not exceed the recommended dosage, otherwise lidocaine hydrochloride may cause numbness in the pharynx and larynx and, as a consequence, hinder the swallowing process.

Side effects and overdose

When you use Dentinox gel, you may experience allergies, itching, burning, blisters. An allergic reaction can be very severe right up to Quincke's edema.

Due to the content of propylene glycol during application, irritation of the mucosa is possible.

If any side effects occur, the doctor should be consulted without delay to adjust the treatment regimen. With the development of swelling Quincke immediately call an ambulance.

With topical application, drug overdose is unlikely, since the gel contains low dosages of active ingredients and is released in a small amount. To date, no cases of drug overdose have been documented.

Opinion of patients

From the responses of parents who used Dentinox when cutting teeth from their babies.

In 9 months, the baby's root teeth, the doctor prescribed for anesthesia Dentinoks. The gel has a pleasant chamomile taste, the anesthetic effect begins quickly, but lasts for a maximum of 2 hours, and then if the child does not give or eat or drink. We approached the Dentokind more, the pain from him passed for a long time.

Svetlana Ryazan

My son's front teeth were hard to erupt, according to the doctor's advice, he smeared Dentinox gel. The effect came quickly, the child quietly fell asleep. Among the shortcomings can be noted short duration of the action. Used for the entire period, while the teeth erupted, also Nurofen additionally gave.

Not Dentinox unite

If you need or do not have Dentinox in pharmacies, you can buy its analogs:

  1. The complete analogue is Kamistad , which also contains chamomile and lidocaine r / d and has the same indications and Kamistad contraindications for use. The only difference is that Kamistad can not be applied to the mucous membrane of the mouth, if its integrity is violated, as it contains benzalkonium chloride as an antiseptic, which disrupts the process of tissue regeneration.
  2. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry produces pharmaceutical preparation Calgel , as an anesthetic it contains lidocaine, and antiseptic - cetylpyridinium chloride. Due to the strength of the analgesic effect, Dentinox and Calgel are the same, but not the one that is not otherwise desirable for babies because of the local anesthetic.
  3. differs in the mechanism of action of the gel Holysal .It does not contain a local-analgesic component, and its analgesic effect is observed due to the fact that choline salicylate( active substance of the drug) removes inflammation, which reduces edema and reduces the pain syndrome. The therapeutic effect occurs a maximum of 3 minutes after application and lasts up to 8 hours, in contrast to the above drugs, which eliminate pain only 20 minutes while the action of lidocaine is observed. However, Holisal is also not recommended for the treatment of infants, as the pharmaceutical contains an anise, which strongly stimulates drooling, which is not allowed in babies.

Substitute one drug for another only after consulting a doctor. Do not use Dentinox gel alone without prescribing a doctor.
