Choline salicylate belongs to a group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) [It works by blocking the action of cyclo-oxygenase in the body].
By blocking cyclo-oxygenase, choline salicylate prevents the formation of prostaglandins and hence reduces inflammation and pain in the infected area of the mouth it is applied to.
Cetalkonium chloride is an antiseptic that kills a variety of bacteria and fungi that might infect sores or broken skin in the mouth.
Choline salicylate in Oraleez gel is used to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by mouth ulcers, denture irritation, tooth pain and cold sores. The antiseptic action of cetalkonium chloride helps prevent the irritated areas from getting infected and this can help them heal.
Oraleez used for conditions associated with,
- Mouth ulcers
- Denture irritation
- Cold sores
Since ulceration of the oral mucosa can occur due to various causes, it is important to establish the diagnosis in each case as the majority of these lesions require specific management in addition to the local treatment.
For Common Mouth Ulcers and Cold sores –
The gel should be massaged into the sore area of the mouth with a clean fingertip. Approximately half an inch of the gel should be used.
For Denture irritations –
Leave 30 minutes after applying the gel before putting the dentures back in. Don't apply the gel directly to the dentures, as this can further irritate the gums.
