What makes new Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer different from toothpastes for sensitive teeth?
New Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer treats pain from sensitive teeth by blocking dentinal tubules preventing excitation of the tooth nerve. The key active ingredient is 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate which blocks the tubules within one day, thus relieving pain from sensitive teeth within one day. Potassium Nitrate (5%), the active ingredient in sensitive teeth toothpastes like Sensodyne, can take up to two weeks to reduce pain from sensitive teeth. One treatment of Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer, which consists of three applications which take just minutes, relieves pain with one day and lasts up to one month.! Unlike sensitive teeth toothpastes which can taste bad, new Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer is neutral tasting and does not leave an aftertaste. You can continue to use your favorite, good-tasting family toothpaste.
Is Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer safe to use?
New Orajel Advanced Tooth Desensitizer is the only FDA-cleared treatment for home use to treat the pain from sensitive teeth within one day that lasts up to one month. It is safe to use (follow package instructions) and contains ingredients approved by the FDA.
Make sure no liquid is dripping from the swab tip. Apply the wet swab across each sensitive tooth, right at the gum line using a gentle back-and-forth-motion. KEEP THE PRODUCT OFF THE GUMS, CHEEKS AND LIPS. Apply for 10 seconds to each sensitive tooth. Allow to dry 30-60 seconds. If more than three teeth need to be treated, add additional product to the swab to keep it thoroughly wet, without dripping. Continue treating the remaining sensitive teeth. After all your sensitive teeth have been treated once, reapply product twice more for 10 seconds across the sensitive area of each tooth, allowing product to dry 30-60 seconds after each application. Floss after completing use to ensure that no material remains between teeth. Refrain from eating or tooth brushing for one hour after the last application. For severe sensitivity, if the discomfort persists after 3 applications, then additional product may be applied. Do not exceed 6 applications in total. See package insert for further information. If no relief is obtained after the maximum treatment of 6 applications, consult your dentist.
I have very sensitive teeth and this is the only product that worked for me. It worked so fast....almost as soon as you apply it on your teeth. The effects of it lasts for about 1 month and sometimes over 1 month.
I've been very disappointed that I could no longer find this product in the market. I called the company and was told that it has been discontinued. I am now on the hunt for another product that will hopefully work as well as the Orajel did.

I have very sensitive teeth and using a toothpaste with a desensitizing agent did little to help. This does work, but is awkward to use. You need to keep the area dry while you apply a clear liquid off of a Q- tip. You cannot really see what you are doing, but you will taste it as it is difficult to keep saliva off of the area while you wait to re-apply. Does work for about a month on me. Unable to locate it locally anymore. I use it periodically when when the sensitivity borders on pain.
