Quick and effective pain relief for toothache!
Member Name: bluebell190
Advantages: Cheap and fast working
Disadvantages: Have to keep applying it every few hours
Anbesol is a liquid pain relief for things like babys teething, tooth ache and can also be used for mouth ulcers. I was recommended this in my local chemist when I was suffering from a bit of toothache, and I couldn't get to my dentist over the weekend. I bought a small 15ml bottle of this for £4, so it isn't expensive to buy as you only need such a small amount, this will probably last ages.
All you do with this anbesol for toothache, is tip the bottle and pour a small amount onto your fingertip, and rub it on the tooth and the gum around it where it is hurting. It doesn't particularly taste very pleasant but not really bad either. I was surprised at how quickly this began to work, it took only about one minute for my tooth to stop hurting. It wasn't too uncomfortable putting it on, but the liquid was quite cold and did sting my sensitive teeth a little bit.
It just felt like it had numbed it, but the effects didn't last that long. About every two hours I was having to apply it again, but the bottle does say you can apply up to 8 times a day, as long as you leave half an hour in-between each application, so I don't think this is really made to give you long lasting pain relief, just short term.
I think this is an amazing product, as it really did numb my tooth and I could just get on with my day for a while, although it was annoying having to keep applying it, I hate taking tablets, so this is a better way of pain relief for me.
I would imagine this would be great to rub on babies gums while they are teething, as it would take the pain away straight away, I have never used it on a mouth ulcer so I don't know if it is any good for them, but if I did have one I definitely would purchase this again! It is so cheap for such quick effective pain relief, and the bottle is tiny so it fits perfectly in any bag to carry around with you.
This product also comes in the form of a gel, as well as a liquid. It contains antiseptic so if you have any infection in the tooth this will also help that. It also contains anaesthetic which is what numbs the tooth and provides the pain relief.
You shouldn't use this product on toothache or anything for more than seven days, I ended up having my tooth out in the end, but this was great to relief the pain until I had the tooth out.
If you are after a cheap, quick and effective way of pain relief for toothache this is definitely the best thing to buy!
