COUREAUX ROJAS, Laritza et al. Effectiveness of topical treatment with Vimang® in patients with denture stomatitis. MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.10, pp.6031-6038. ISSN 1029-3019.

A stage III controlled therapeutic clinical trial was performed in 120 patients with denture stomatitis, attended in the Provincial School of Dentistry "Martires del Moncada" of Santiago de Cuba, from June 2010 to May 2011, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of topical treatment with Vimang® tea in these patients. Two groups (study and control) with 60 members each were divided. The first ones were treated with tea cold mouthwashes 4 times a day and the second ones with the same treatment and vitamins. The percentage for qualitative variables and the arithmetic mean and standard deviation for quantitative variables were used. All members of the study group were cured and material usage decreased but the cost-effectiveness was higher because of lower healing time. The Vimang® tea was effective in eliminating the clinical manifestations of that lesion and there were not adverse reactions, so that it was possible to cure those affected, saving time and resources.
