      Not what I expected. Rx is MUCH better.

        Comments about G-U-M Canker X, Maximum Strength Canker & Mouth Sore Pain Relief Gel, .28 fl oz:

        The Rx dental paste works much, much better at pain relief plus a ptotective film, speeding up the healing process, and like the above product, it does not sting at all when applied. Your dentist can write you a prescription. For me, this Rx was covered by my prescription drug insurance, even though I don't have separate dental insurance. The Rx works best if you apply it at the earliest sign of a developing canker sore, so go see your dentist if you have recurring canker sores and get the Rx to keep on hand.

        Aids pain & healing of canker sores

        By sdlady

        Pros

        • Effective
        • Soothing

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Canker sores when small

          Comments about G-U-M Canker X, Maximum Strength Canker & Mouth Sore Pain Relief Gel, .28 fl oz:

          I find this product helps heal canker sores treated early. It soothes immediately upon application. It can be ineffective in healing large sores, but still helps ease pain. I dry the sore with one end of a cotton swab and apply a pea-sized drop of gel with the other end. It's best to use it when you can leave it undisturbed a while; avoid drinking or eating right after use to let it remain in place as long as possible. Try it after meals and before bedtime.

            Comments about G-U-M Canker X, Maximum Strength Canker & Mouth Sore Pain Relief Gel, .28 fl oz:

            I am an adult orthodontic patient, and a dental hygienist. I've been using orabase and zilactin to relieve the pain of the abrasions from my braces on my soft tissues. I received a sample at a professional meeting and found this product much more comfortable to use and just as effective.

            Benzocaine Free!

            By Nicole

            from Brooklyn, NY

            Pros

            • No Side Effects
            • Promotes Healing

            Cons

            • Hard to Administer

            Best Uses

            • Canker sores
            • Cheek bites

            Comments about G-U-M Canker X, Maximum Strength Canker & Mouth Sore Pain Relief Gel, .28 fl oz:

            Since I have an allergy to benzocaine and other similar ingredients, it is hard to find effective products that are benzocaine free. This product does not contain benzocaine, so it is something I can use.

            Although you have to apply it often and it can be a little messy, I find this product to relieve most of the discomfort of mouth sores and it does help them heal a lot faster.

            Nearly useless

            • Doesn't stick

            Best Uses

              Comments about G-U-M Canker X, Maximum Strength Canker & Mouth Sore Pain Relief Gel, .28 fl oz:

              I bought this hoping that it would work better than other canker medicines - convinced by the money-back guarantee.

              After using it for several days, still experiencing the same pain from my canker sore and watching it slowly grow in size, I think I'll be requesting my money-back guarantee.

              First of all, this stuff is hard to apply. It comes in a gel and seems like it wants to stick to your finger or swab more than to the sore. You're also not supposed to eat or drink or basically move your mouth for an hour after you apply it. Right. Even if you follow the directions, within an hour you'll forget that you've even applied anything because the sore still hurts and there is no protective coating.

              It doesn't really work and the film comes off very easily so you are constantly reapplying it.
