Pharmacological action

 Once tannins come into contact with oral mucous membrane, they react with and cross link proteins in both the mucous and epithelial cells of the mucosa (2). The mucosa is consequently bound more tightly and rendered less permeable, a process referred  to as astringency. Astringency affords increased protection to the subadjacent  layers of the mucosa from the presence of microorganisms and irritant chemicals. It also creates an antisecretory effect on the mucous  membrane (2).Iralvex  is able to stop gum bleeding. Upon the application of Iralvex on the gum , it provides a prompt temporary relief of local pain or discomfort associated with the gum inflammation and with pericoronitis or peridontitis, dental procedures, and gingivectomies .
