Resumen

TAMAYO ORTIZ, Baonelys et al. Calendula officinalis L cream effective treatment for recurrent aphthous stomatitis. ccm [online]. 2019, vol.23, n.1, pp.175-186. ISSN 1560-4381.

Introduction:

recurrent aphthous stomatitis is a frequent disease in periodontology emergencies.

Objective:

to evaluate the Calendula officinalis L at 10% cream effectiveness, as treatment for recurrent aphthous stomatitis, in a stomatological clinic.

Method:

non-control, non-randomized trial was conducted in a population between 15 and 34 years old, who attended “Manuel Angulo Farrán” Stomatological Teaching Clinic in Holguín, Cuba, from 2015 to 2017. Sample was 100 patients, treated in consultations every 48 hours, for 6 days.

Results:

the 59% of the patients were female, 63% between 25 to 34 years, and minor aphthae predominated in the 97%. The studied cream improved symptoms in 97% of patients and 94% were completely cured.

Conclusions:

Calendula officinalis L at 10% cream seems effective in the treatment of recurrent aphthous stomatitis, although controlled and randomized clinical trials would definitively demonstrate it.
