Consistent mechanical wearing of the skin that lines the mouth cavity, allergic reactions or even mental stress are some of the causes of canker sores. Canker sores are non-infected non-hazardous ulcers. Although they are not particularly dangerous to the affected individuals health, they can be painful, uncomfortable or irritating. They may even affect speech and eating ability. Orajel Mouth Sore Gel is a pharmaceutical agent for treating canker sores. In this review, we determine if it is the best option for the treatment of canker sores.
This product contains an antiseptic in the form of benzalkonium chloride. Benzalkonium chloride breaks down bacterial membranes. This causes the bacteria to leak their contents and eventually to perish.
This product also contains a local anaesthetic in the form of benzocaine. Benzocaine prevents sodium from entering into the free nerve endings which prevents them from sending pain signals to the brain.
Zinc chloride is used as an astringent agent. Astringent agents cause skin tightening. They cause proteins in the skin to stick together to form a tough layer that is impenetrable to most infectious agents as well. By clumping together, the proteins take up less space and this causes the skin to contract.
Orajel Mouth Sore Gel can be applied to the affected area up to 4 times a day. This can be helped by the tip attached to the tube of Orajel. For best results apply evenly to the whole area affected and avoid touching the gel with your tongue.

Our Conclusive Review About Orajel Mouth Sore Gel
The price of this pharmaceutical is quite affordable and the ingredients are well researched and will most likely work, provided the gel stays where it’s meant to.
The problem with this product is that it is a potent synthetic product which can have unwanted effects on the whole mouth instead of the desired effect in the specific area. This is because synthetic products are normally quite concentrated. Pharmaceutical companies often don’t provide a guarantee either, just like this manufacturer does not.
For a less risky purchase in terms of side-effects and a guarantee, natural products with a satisfaction guarantee to back them up are better considered.
