Quick Overview

Anbesol teething gel 10g

Anbesol teething gel provides effective relief from the pain caused due to mouth ulcers, denture irritation and teething. This medicine is made up of three active ingredients, namely, chlorocresol, lidocaine hydrochloride (earlier called as lignocaine hydrochloride in the UK) and cetylpyridinium chloride.

In which chlorocresol and cetylpyridinium chloride both are gentle antiseptics that destroy various bacteria and fungus that are likely to infect sore or broken skin in the mouth. The Lidocaine hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. It temporarily blocks the pathway of pain signals along nerves.

The main reason behind the pain is the stimulation of pain receptors at the ends of nerves. It’s because of this stimulation sodium enters the nerve ending part, due to which an electrical signal builds up in the nerve. When this electrical signal is big enough, it passes along the nerve to the brain, where the signal is interpreted as pain. So, the Lidocaine works by stopping the sodium entering the nerve ending at the site of the pain. This prevents an electrical signal building up and passing along the nerve fibres to the brain. In this way lidocaine causes numbness and relieves pain at the area it is applied to.
