It happened just a few minutes ago. not dizzy. Have used this a few times in past, but never swallowed it. Has a headache

Dear Wanda, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.

Well, Usually the whitening gel will not harm you in the quantities swallowed under normal use.
The ingredient used to whiten / bleach teeth is Carbamide Peroxide, it is a stabilized form of Hydrogen Peroxide which is a natural compound found in nature.

If you swallow the gel during your routine whitening - This is HARMLESS in these quantities.
If ingested in large quantities , then contact physician immediately.

It is common to swallow such small quantity during this procedure. This would usually not cause any side effects.
This is normal and, except for the taste, there are no hazards for most people who swallow small amounts of gel.

Any accidental swallowing should not be harmful as because it should not be much. Normal quantities should be safe and should not give you any reason to worry.

For mild headache, you can take Tylenol.
