Treatment of Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis (RAS) often becomes a problem until now. It is because of the RAS characteristic that has a high recurrence, unclear etiology and has a lot of predisposing factors. Antiplaque™ tooth paste with active ingredients of Sodium monophosphate, Arnica tincture, Cloxiphenol and Oleum cariofill, has been used in this study to accelerate healing and to reduce the recurrence of RAS. Ninety one students and employees of Faculty of Dentistry, University of Indonesia who have minor RAS as subjects were divided into study group and control group. Regarding of healing the results of 58.7% from study group compared to 35.9% from control group, implies that the lesions healed faster. RAS recurrence of 83.3% from study group compared to 42.9% from control group states that recurrence had decreased.
