Orajel Maximum Strength Toothache Gel: The active ingredient in Orajel Maximum Strength is Benzocaine 20% which is strong enough to provide immediate relief from toothache. The gel is also designed to last for several hours and is extremely easy to apply.

Pharmacist Tip

A local anaesthetic, benzocaine numbs the affected area and gives instant targeted relief. Take care not to burn yourself whilst your mouth is numb.

If you are suffering pain from a toothache, try Orajel Maximum Strength Toothache Gel for instant relief. Unlike oral medication such as Aspirin which can take at least half an hour to have an effect, Orajel is effective immediately and can soothe and ease the terrible pain in your tooth.

It works by going straight to the source of the pain and the effects last for several hours. It is one of the strongest gels of its kind on the market so if you can't stand the pain from a toothache, use Orajel immediately.

Adults, including the elderly and children 2 years and over:

  • Using a swab or a clean finger, apply the gel to the affected area. 
  • Use only a tiny amount of the gel about the dimension of a green pea. 
  • Apply the gel up to 4 times every day.
  • Avoid applying this gel for more than 7 days at a time.
