Having had a lot of dental pain and suffering throughout my life I can say that I should have invested in stock with this product. It works efficiently and fast for dental pain. It does numb your problem area and the only down side is the taste. The taste is tolerable compared to some of the other products that I have used, but I guess it could be worse. If you are using this product you are willing to be negotiable for the relief of the pain. I have used this product on my husband and children and it has been effective all the way. My son has a hard time with his teeth coming out and we have had to use this to help his discomfort in the process. I would recommend this product for anyone with dental discomfort and say that it is worth the cost. It is both cost efficient and a good product for the purpose of use. This product is sufficient for its purpose and our local dentist is the one who recommended it to my family for over the counter use.
