Great product worth every penny
I totally ruined my teeth from 35 years of smoking rollups so this stuff has been a godsend for me to use when i go to the dentist. Excellent product imo and has lasted me ages and im about to buy some more as i leave this review. It really does work properly.
Completely numbs your mouth
This works really quickly and is just like the dentist's numbing injections but without the needle. It doesn't last as long, maybe 50 mins but long enough for minor dentistry. Didn't feel a thing.
It is not working very well for me. I still feel pain, but everybody is diffetent, so might work for someone else.
