About Orajel Dental Gel 

Orajel Dental Gel is a treatment for the temporary relief from the pain and tenderness associated with mouth ulcers and from wearing dentures. Note that this product is designed as a temporary measure, and should not be used in place of seeing a dentist.

This gel contains the active ingredient benzocaine, a local anaesthetic. Benzocaine provides relief by numbing the area. This prevents the nerves from sending pain signals and thus stops pain in the treatment area. 

Simply apply an amount of gel the size of a green pea to the affected area to provide relief.


Some patients may find that Orajel Dental Gel isn’t as effective at treating their symptoms. Here at Simple Online Pharmacy, we have several alternatives available, including;

Orajel Extra Strength Gel contains the same ingredients; the only difference between these products is that the Extra Strength formula has twice the active ingredient (benzocaine), making it better for more intense pain and tenderness.

How does Orajel work?

Orajel contains the active ingredient Benzocaine. Benzocaine is a local anaesthetic; it blocks pain signals where it is applied. This makes it perfect for treating mouth ulcers and denture pain temporarily, until you can see your dentist or doctor. Benzocaine is a commonly-used pain relief ingredient, and one of many over-the-counter pain relief treatments. 

How long does Orajel last?

Under normal use, Orajel takes roughly 15-20 minutes to start working. The pain relief effect should last between 2-3 hours, though you may notice the effect is not as strong towards the end of that time. 

Note that Orajel should only be used 4 times in a 24-hour period, meaning you may have periods where you cannot use this treatment. Orajel should not be used for more than 4 days in a row without speaking to your doctor or dentist.
