Canker sores can be caused by a variety of factors which range from genetics to simple skin abrasion. They are not highly detrimental to to health but they can affect speaking and eating.

There is only one active ingredient present in this product and that is benzocaine. Benzocaine is a local anaesthetic meaning that it prevents pain and itching in the area that it is applied. In order for pain signals to reach the brain, free nerve endings in the painful area need to allow sodium ions to flow across their membranes. This flow perpetuates along the nerve fibers and eventually reaches the brain. Benzocaine blocks the initial inflow of sodium in the nerve ending cells. Without it starting signal the pain message cannot travel to the brain and so the pain is not felt.
Before applying the gel the affected area must be dried. Then a thin coat of the gel can be applied using a cotton swab or clean finger. This can be done up to 4 times per day. The gel must be allowed to dry for 30 to 60 seconds before resuming normal function of the mouth.

Our Conclusive Review About Zilactin-B Long Lasting Mouth Sore Gel
The price of this product is quite affordable and the customer feedback reviews are quite positive. However this product contains only one active ingredient which is not able to fulfil many functions. It also causes a more widespread anaesthetic effect if it dissolves.
The application for this product could also be quite tedious and there are a number of significant side effects. Ultimately, the manufacturer does not offer a guarantee so there is a degree of risk when buying this product.
We suggest perhaps looking at a product with multiple natural ingredients that is backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
