What is the dosage for triamcinolone-dental?

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.

Which drugs or supplements interact with triamcinolone-dental?

: Since triamcinolone acetonide dental paste is used topically and for short durations, clinically significant blood absorption is not thought to occur. As a result, the risk for drug interactions with triamcinolone acetonide dental paste and other medications is relatively low.
