Orajel Extra Strength, which contains 20% w/w Benzocaine, is primarily indicated for temporary relief of toothache pain associated with a broken tooth or a tooth that may require a filling.

Benzocaine, the active ingredient in Orajel Extra Strength, is used to relieve pain and irritation caused by sore throat, sore mouth, or canker sores.

Use and Dosage

Follow all directions on the product package. If your doctor has prescribed this medication, use it as directed. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not use this medication more than 4 times a day unless directed by your doctor. Allow the medication to stay on the painful area for at least 1 minute before spitting out or rinsing the mouth.

Do not use large amounts of this drug or use it more often than directed because the risk for serious side effects (including rarely fatal methemoglobinemia) will increase.

Avoid getting this medication in the eyes.

Stop using this medication and tell your doctor if your sore throat is severe if it lasts for more than 2 days, or if your sore mouth symptoms last more than 7 days, or if you have a fever, headache, rash, swelling, nausea, or vomiting. You may have a serious medical problem that may require different treatment. If your condition lasts or gets worse, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, get medical help right away.

Side Effects

Orajel used in the mouth may cause a condition in which the oxygen in your body tissues can become dangerously low. This is a potentially fatal condition called methemoglobinemia (met-HEEM-oh glo-bin-EE-mee-a). This condition may occur after only one use of benzocaine or after several uses.

  • Fast heartbeats
  • Feeling light-headed or short of breath
  • Pale, blue, or gray appearance of your skin, lips, or fingernails
