Hello, : Hello, some people do apply orajel® to the tongue. The danger is if your tongue becomes numb, you could very easily bite it and thus injure it more. The other problem is if you had an allergic reaction, your tongue could swell. Cough drops that contain Benzocaine or menthol would also provide some numbing action. For an acute burn, consider dipping your tongue in very cold water or sucking gently on a popsicle. Yogurt with active cultures can be helpful. Please do not put adult orajel® on a baby’s tongue. Do not use adult orajel® for babies. ...Read more

Full mouth extractions march 19...Few tender spots on lower gum one has bone splinter starting to work it's way out...Ok to use oragel or similar?

Call your surgeon: The "splinter" may not be that at all... It might be the edge of the socket. If so, it will need to be smoothed down. If it is a bone spicule, your dentist can easily tease it out painlessly and quickly, allowing your gums to heal that much faster. Give the office a call. ...Read more

Please help! i need to numb my tongue frenulum for a few minutes to do something that would otherwise be a bit too painful to do myself. Will orajel numb the area?

No: Topical anesthetics provide surface, not deep, numbing. If you are contemplating self-surgery please rethink. In addition to the distinct possibility of an extremely painful experience, the possibility of injury, bleeding, infection, are extremely high. And trying to work backwards in a mirror takes training and experience. Please rethink. ...Read more

I have a cut on my tongue. I had it for 4 days and just last night and today hurts the most. Can I use orajel to remove the pain?

I thought I was rubbing orajel on my sore gum and tooth but it was actually campho phenique I brushed my teeth 3 times should I be concerned?

You're OK: And I say that with a caveat. The small amount of campo phenique will not harm you. The untreated sore gum/tooth may harm you as you may be dealing with a spreading infection, and if so it will not self heal. You need to be professionally examined, diagnosed, and then treated. Please call a Dentist. ...Read more
