Orajel Severe Toothache and Gum Relief Plus Triple Medicated Cream can usually be found at your local drugstore. Do not use this product if you open it and see that the tip looks as if it has already been cut open. Stop using the product if you are experiencing any signs of an allergic reaction and go see a doctor immediately.
Do not use this product if you already have an allergy to local anesthetics, such as procaine, butacaine, benzocaine, or any other ‘-caine’ anesthetics.
This Orajel treatment should only be used in severe cases of tooth and gum pain. It is important to remember that the treatment will only help to alleviate the pain and will not get rid of the actual problem.

Pain associated with the teeth and gums should be checked by a professional who will be able to help you decide if using Orajel can be effective in addressing your dental issue.
