Description
Tess 0.1 % Paste is used in the treatment of stomatitis, a condition characterized by redness, swelling, and painful sores inside the mouth. Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% dental paste is a prescription medicine used to treat painful lesions in the mouth. Like other corticosteroids, triamcinolone has anti-inflammatory and antipruritic (anti-itch) properties. Corticosteroids are natural substances produced by the adrenal glands located adjacent to the kidneys. Corticosteroids have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Corticosteroids prevent release of chemicals that cause inflammation.
How to use
To treat oral lesions, use a small dab (about ¼ inch) to cover the lesion with a thin film. A larger quantity may be required for some lesions. For best results, only use enough paste to coat the lesion with a thin film. Do not rub in. Depending on severity of symptoms, two or three applications per day may be required, preferably after meals. The paste should be applied at bedtime to allow contact with the lesion throughout the night. If symptoms do not improve in seven days, patients should seek further medical advice. To prevent unwanted side effects, corticosteroids should be used for the shortest duration possible. Therapy should be discontinued as soon as control of symptoms is achieved. Triamcinolone acetonide dental paste should not be used in the presence of fungal, viral, or bacterial infections of the mouth or throat.
Precautions
Triamcinolone acetonide has been shown to cause birth defects in several animal species. As there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women, the risk of birth defects in humans is not known. Triamcinolone acetonide dental paste should only be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Triamcinolone acetonide dental paste is classified as FDA pregnancy risk category C (Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.
