One clinical trial comparing Debacterol to Kenalog-in-Orabase and a no-intervention control group found that patients treated with Debacterol reported significantly better relief of symptoms compared to the other two groups 3 days after treatment. In the same study, 60% of ulcers treated with Debacterol had disappeared by day 6 compared to about 30% in the other groups.
Debacterol appears to be more effective on mouth sores in areas of the mouth which have less saliva production. Since a mouth sore must be dry prior to application of Debacterol, the area under the tongue is difficult to get a solid application on. The length of time of pain relief and the overall effectiveness may be reduced in areas such as this.
