What are mouth ulcers?
Mouth ulcers happen quite commonly and many people suffer with them. They form on the insides of your mouth, your cheeks, your tongue, or on your lips. They cannot always be prevented but they usually heal by themselves in up to two weeks. They can be irritating and painful when you eat, drink or talk.
How will Orajel Mouth Gel help to relieve painful mouth ulcers?
Orajel Mouth Gel contains the active ingredient benzocaine, which relieves pain in the area of application. It works as a local anaesthetic, numbing the painful area and easing your pain straight away.
