Pros: Works wonders on pain
I have been using the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream for about two years or so now. I have real bad problems with my teeth. My wisdom teeth came in late in life, and they have pushed all of my molars forward causing two on each side to break and the nerves to be expose and give me tons of pain a long with it. I had been suffering for weeks. I tried Kanka and other brands, I even tried the regular Orajel and it just did not work. But the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream vertainly made the change in that area. It works wonders!
Like many people, I do not have medical that covers all dental procedures. I can not afford to fix or have my teeth removed at the prices that they charge people today. The Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream was and still is my only true option for help with the constant pain that I have when it comes to my teeth. My teeth cause not only my mouth the hurt, but my ears, my head and every thing around it. It was to the point where I would cry on a daily basis.
When I began using the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream. I noticed the change in pain right away. There was nothing. It was not really numb so to speak. But the pain was gone and I could eat or drink any thing I wanted. Even if it was hot or cold. I had not been able to do that for a very long time. I was so happy about it, I can't even find the words to explain. I became pregnant with my son and had to stop using it. The doctor told me that it was ok. But in my opinion I just did not want to use any kind of medicine while I was pregnant. I am a little paranoid about that stuff I guess.
So for pretty much nine and a half months or so. I was suffering with severe pain again. This showed me that with out the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream I could not fully function in my daily life as I should be able to. Needless to say, once I had my son back in October I went right back to using the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream. And it has been helping me daily ever since. I can't stand the pain with out it. It is amazing how well it works.

I often buy the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream from Walgreens drug store here in Rhode Island where it is $7.99 per tube. They do have it cheaper in CVS pharmacy but Walgreens is much closer to me so I buy it there instead. I do not mind the price. It is a very small price to pay in order to be up and around and function with no pain.
I have to say that the Orajel Pm Tooth ache Cream does not have much taste, and for a few minutes it does feel hot, then numb but then the pain is completely gone and does not return for hours. Some times I only have to use it once through out the day but most times I use it in the morning and at night time. It does work great. I would highly recommend it.
