Conclusion – Orajel Mouth Sore Gel
We like that this product claims to provide instant relief of pain when it is applied to mouth sores. We also like that it has antiseptic properties which help to fight off infection when it comes to mouth irritations. Although most reviews regarding Orajel Mouth Sore Gel are positive we did come across reviews that stated this product does not provide any relief and does not effectively get rid of canker sores. Another review on the manufacturer’s website reported that it only provides temporary relief and has difficulty sticking to mouth sores.
