Does orajel for toothache work? or does it just numb your mouth?

Report as

Yes, i've used it. It numbs your mouth for a few hours. I just buy the generic brand though ;)

It works as a local anesthetic but it is just symptomatic relief lasting a short time between applications. It won't fix the cause of course .

Oil of cloves works better.

Orajel can help with the pain for a short time, but even if the pain goes away, the cause of the toothache will not. A toothache is always a sign that something is wrong, usually that you have a cavity. It's crucial that you see a dentist asap. The longer that you go the more serious the problem will become.
