What is Orajel Extra Strength Dental Gel?

Orajel Extra Strength Gel is a type of local anaesthetic designed to ease the pain of toothache. It numbs the area, easing pain quickly and effectively, with twice the strength of regular Orajel gel. Perfect for those who are suffering with more painful toothache.

 

Who is Orajel Extra Strength suitable for?

It is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over who are suffering with toothache. If you have a broken tooth or need a filling and can’t get to your dentist straight away, Orajel Extra Strength can help to ease your pain until you can make an appointment.

 

What causes toothache?

There are lots of reasons why you may be suffering with toothache, and many people suffer with it at one point or another. Your dentist will be able to tell you the exact cause of your toothache, but some of the most common causes include:

  • Tooth decay
  • A broken or chipped tooth
  • A loose or broken filling
  • Dental abscesses
  • Infections
  • Poorly fitting braces

 

How will this gel ease my toothache?

Orajel Extra Strength contains 20% w/w of the active ingredient Benzocaine, which is a local anaesthetic. This means it numbs the area where you apply it, easing your pain right away. It can be applied straight into the tooth cavity, to reduce pain right at the source until you can see your dentist.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this gel or any other medication. This will help you to be sure that this product is safe for you and your baby.

 

Can I use this gel if I’m taking other medication?

You should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you are taking any other medication, as they may interact. Do not use this product if you are taking any sulphonamides antibiotics, such as co-trimoxazole, as the active ingredient it Orajel can stop these antibiotics from working as effectively as they should.

 

How should I be using this toothache gel?

You simply open the tube and apply a small amount, roughly the size of a pea, into the tooth cavity. Do not use this product more than 4 times a day. This gel is for short-term use only, do not use continuously.

 

Why do I need to answer some medical questions before I can buy?
