I'd just get some nice teething toys, that can be put in the freezer.
Orajel has alcohol in it, or it used to.

Please read this link on Benzocaine induced Methemoglobenemia in dog's,as a lot of teething gel's contain this ingredient.
Benzocaine-induced methemoglobinemia in dogs. | Mendeley
As this would be used in the pup's mouth,check the ingredient's.You could use frozen carrot's instead.

I think there's no downside to appropriate chewing and many potential downsides to using a drug like that in a dog's mouth.
BTW, dogs can die from xylitol poisoning and it's a popular additive in gum, mints and medication that are meant to be eaten.

Orajel doesnt last very long..try it yourself. By the time the dog slobbers a bunch, chews a toy ,it will be dissovled away. I really don't think it would work that great. And I really dont think they are in that much pain...more of annoyance maybe.

Don't know whether its safe as I have never used it. I would just give him lots to chew on and to have available for the ability to relieve that annoyance.
