Introduction

Instacam Mouth Gel is a combination medicine used in the treatment of mouth ulcers. It promotes the healing of mouth ulcers by forming a protective coating over the mouth sores. It also blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain to decrease the sensation of pain.

Instacam Mouth Gel should be used strictly as advised by your doctor. Use it in the dose and duration as directed by your doctor. You should not use more quantity or more often than prescribed by your doctor. This will not make it work any faster rather increase the chance of side effects.

Using of this medicine may cause some common side effects such as application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching, and redness), dryness in mouth, metallic taste, nausea, and staining of teeth. These are usually temporary and resolve with time. If they do not get better with time or worsen, you should let your doctor know. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the side effects.

Before using the medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are using or have recently used any other medicines for the same condition or other diseases. To make sure the medicine is safe, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using the medicine.

How Instacam Dental Gel works

Instacam Mouth Gel is a combination of three medicines: Lidocaine, Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Metronidazole, which treats mouth sores. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic which forms a protective coating over the mouth sores and blocks pain signals to further relieve pain. Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic and disinfectant which effectively cleans out the ulcer surface to prevent infection. Metronidazole is an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms by damaging their DNA.
