Orajel Mouth Sore Gel Review – The Bottom Line

There are a couple of positive things about Orajel Mouth Sore Gel. It is sold at a pretty fair price. It also has many positive customer reviews. A lot of customers said that it was able to relieve their pain and soreness. One customer even said that it really helped their daughter with the pain caused by braces. There are a couple of negative things as well. The lack of guarantee shows that the manufacturer has very little confidence in their product’s effectiveness. There were also a few customers that felt this product didn’t work so well and was a waste of money. They said that it caused a huge mess, didn’t stay on the affected area, and had to keep being reapplied. We feel you may be able to find a more effective product elsewhere.
