Apply this medication 2 or 3 times daily, preferably after meals. At least one application should be at bedtime so that the medication can be in contact with the lesion overnight.
To apply, press a small dab (about 6 mm) to the lesion until a smooth, slippery,
thin film develops. You may need to apply a larger amount to cover larger lesions. Do not rub it in. For best results, apply enough dental paste to just coat the lesion with a thin film. If your symptoms do not improve within 7 days, call your doctor.
