Topical drug therapy for ulcerative and vesiculobullous diseases of the oral mucosa has generally proved unsatisfactory because of the turbulent and changing nature of the oral cavity. The construction and use of an intraoral drug delivery system using custom carriers to deliver topical medication is described. The delivery system presented overcomes many of the obstacles associated with topical drug administration for oral lesions and provides a therapeutic alternative to systemic agents.
