Stomatofit: instructions for use

Stomatofit is a line of 5 drugs used in inflammatory diseases in the oral cavity. Manufacturer - pharmaceutical company Fitofarm (Poland). The drug is available in the form of a spray, a concentrated solution, means for lubricating erosion during stomatitis, as well as 2 types of rinses, one of which is used from 6 years and the other from 14 years.

The active components of the main 3 preparations of this series are extracts of 7 types of medicinal plants - chamomile, oak bark, sage, arnica, calamus, thyme and peppermint (+ one of these three preparations "Stomatofit A" - additionally also contains anesthesin). The remaining 2 rinses additionally include fluorides, xylitol and thymol, but the concentration of herbal extracts in them is much lower.

In this article we will talk about the indications for the use of drugs Stomatofit, about the features of their use in the treatment of inflammation of the gums and stomatitis, positive, as well as negative properties that do not always allow their use in some groups of patients. Below we will analyze the following forms of release of this drug in order -

  • Stomatofit (as a solution),
  • Stomatofit Expert (spray),
  • Stomatofit A (with anesthesin),
  • Rinse series Stomatofit Fresh.

1. Stomatofit - reviews, price

This form is a concentrated alcohol solution of medicinal plant extracts, which is intended for dilution: 7.5 ml of the preparation is diluted in 50 ml of water (1/4 cup of warm boiled water) - to obtain a ready solution for rinsing. The drug has a brown color, and at the bottom of the bottle may be a precipitate. The presence of sediment is normal; the bottle just needs to be shaken up before use.

Composition and release form -
on Stomatofit, the instructions for use contain information that the following amount of plant materials is used to obtain one bottle of 100 ml of the drug: chamomile flowers - 13 g, sage leaves - 13.0 g, oak bark - 13.0 g, calamus root - 6 , 5 g, arnica - 6.5 g, thyme ordinary - 6.5 g, peppermint - 6.5 g

The important point is that the drug contains alcohol in the amount of 60-70% of the volume! This sharply limits the use of the drug in motorists, patients with xerostomia (dry mouth), because alcohol will further dry the oral mucosa, as well as in patients with halitosis. The drug is available in bottles of 100 and 50 ml. At Stomatofit the price will be from 160 rubles per bottle of 50 ml, and about 240 rubles per bottle of 100 ml.

Indications for use -
due to the content of extracts of medicinal plants, the drug has primarily anti-inflammatory and astringent effects, as well as a small antiseptic. In this regard, it can be used primarily for inflammatory diseases of the gums - gingivitis or periodontitis (Figure 3-4), as well as for rinsing the mouth during stomatitis (Figure 2).

Contraindications to use -

  • the presence of allergic reactions to any of the components of the drug,
  • children under 12 years old
  • when driving (contains alcohol),
  • due to the alcohol content, it is not recommended to use Stomatofit during pregnancy and lactation.

Dosage and administration -
First you need to shake the bottle before use. Next, 7.5 ml of the drug must be diluted in about 1/4 cup of warm boiled water. For dispensing use the measuring cup that comes in the kit. Next, rinse your mouth for 1 minute. The course of application is usually 10-15 days, 3-4 times a day.

Reviews of the drug Stomatofit -

Pretty good drug, with high concentrations of medicinal plants, which has primarily moderate anti-inflammatory and astringent action. Due to its astringent effect, the drug reduces the bleeding of the gums when cleaning them. However, the antiseptic effect of this drug is very insignificant, which makes it not quite suitable as the main drug for treating gum inflammation.

Therefore, for the treatment of inflammation of the gums, it is better to use rinse solutions that have a pronounced antiseptic effect, for example, chlorhexidine solution. Either combine this solution with one of the antimicrobial gels for gums containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridine antiseptics, or the antibiotic metronidazole. But for conducting preventive courses, this drug is more than good, and in this case, the Stomatofit reviews will be positive.

It is also important to understand that pathogenic bacteria of dental plaque and stone are the cause of inflammation of the latter, and without removing dental plaque from the dentist, any mouthwash (including Stomatofit) will only have a short-term effect, without significant improvement. Therefore, the correct strategy for the use of the drug in inflammation of the gums is to conduct a preliminary ultrasonic cleaning of the teeth from plaque and stone, after which anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed in the form of rinses and applications for the gums with a course of 10-12 days.

In addition, many patients complain of the development of constant dryness of the oral mucosa with regular rinses with Stomatofit. This is due to the alcohol content and, of course, it is therefore best to limit the course of the drug use to only 10 days, and when dryness develops, switch to alternative alcohol-free alternatives. This may be other anti-inflammatory mouth rinses, for example, Rinse Stomatofit Fresh and Parodontotsid, funds - PresiDent Antibacterial or PRESIDENT Active Plus (for more details on the link).

Important: The manufacturer recommends diluting 40-50 ml of rinse solution, but in fact only 10 ml is enough. There is no need to repeatedly pour the solution into the mouth and spit it out. You only need to take a solution in your mouth once and rinse for 1 minute, and this will not affect the effectiveness of rinsing for the worse. Why does the manufacturer give such recommendations, I think everyone understands.

This creates the possibility of using the drug in any place, for example, at work, in a car or in nature, and saves you from having to dilute a stomatofit concentrated solution with water.

Photos of stomatitis ulcers -

The composition of this rinse is very different from the previous tools in the Dentistry line of drugs. The composition is wider, however, the concentration of extracts of medicinal plants is much smaller here, which in principle makes this drug only a means for preventing gum inflammation (but not for treatment), as well as for giving freshness to the oral cavity + strengthening teeth with fluoride.

Stomatofit Fresh: reviews

Decent composition, attractive price. Does not contain chemical antiseptics, antibiotics, alcohol, making it suitable for permanent use. Sodium fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and prevents the formation of caries. The anti-caries effect will be higher if you use toothpaste with calcium and not fluoride before rinsing the mouth.

Essential oils will help to freshen breath, and will also have an anti-inflammatory effect on the oral mucosa, which is important for the prevention of exacerbation of chronic gum inflammation. Stomatofit Fresh is more suitable as a means to strengthen the teeth, create freshness of the oral cavity, as well as to prevent inflammation of the gums. But for the treatment of inflammation of the gums, the drug is not suitable, because contains too small concentrations of anti-inflammatory components that do not have, in addition, a noticeable antiseptic effect.
