Bonjela Cool Mint Gel Mouth Ulcer Relief For Adults is a pain-relieving gel that also reduces inflammation and helps fight infection in mouth ulcers, brace sores, denture sores, teething and cold sores.
Clinically proven to aid the healing and relieve the pain of mouth ulcers caused by braces and dentures.
Bonjela Cool Mint Gel is a clear, almost colourless gel, which is applied to the inside of the mouth or gums. It contains choline salicylate (a pain killer and anti-inflammatory) which soothes sore areas in the mouth and an antiseptic called cetalkonium chloride, which kills bacteria and helps prevent infection.
Bonjela Cool Mint Gel is intended for adults and children over the age of 16
Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist have told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

– Mouth ulcers and sores
Using a clean finger
Massage approximately one centimetre (half an inch) of bonjela Cool Mint Gel onto the sore area.
This can be repeated after 3 hours.
– Denture sores
Massage approximately one centimetre of bonjela Cool Mint Gel onto the sore area, and leave at least 30 minutes before reinserting the dentures.
Do not apply bonjela Cool Mint Gel directly onto the dentures.
Do not take more medicine than the label or leaflet tells you to as salicylate toxicity may occur as a result.
If your symptoms do not go away after 7 days of treatment, you should see your doctor or dentist. In the case of a missed dose, simply apply a new dose and follow the instructions described above.
Do not give to children or adolescents under 16 years of age. This is because there is a possible link between salicylates and Reye’s
syndrome when given to children. Reye’s syndrome is a very rare disease which affects the brain and liver and can be fatal.
