What is OraVerse?
OraVerse works to reverse the numbing effects of local dental anesthesia. According to clinical studies, the drug can cut the time of numbness at least in half.
Are You Interested?
The creation of OraVerse for dental anesthesia reversal has been widely applauded by both dentists and patients. In fact, OraVerse was selected as one of the Top 100 Products for 2009 by Dentistry Today magazine. But like many dental products that are considered "optional dentistry," your dental insurance may not cover the cost of OraVerse. If you’re interested, be sure to ask your dentist about pricing prior to receiving dental care.
Many patients are choosing OraVerse so they can get back to their daily activities without incident and schedule appointments at their leisure. But not every dentist offers OraVerse for local anesthesia reversal.
On average, it takes 3-5 hours for local anesthesia to wear off completely. OraVerse decreases residual numbness at least twice as fast, allowing you to regain full sensation of your mouth soon after you leave the dental office. The active ingredient in OraVerse is phentolamine, which opens blood vessels to increase blood flow.
Administering OraVerse is no different than giving you an injection of local anesthesia. OraVerse is immediately injected following the dental procedure in the same location and manner in which your dental anesthesia was administered. Since you will already be numb, you won't have to worry about feeling pain at the injection site.
A Safe Bet
The same drug used in OraVerse has been utilized in other aspects of medicine for over 50 years. The makers of OraVerse have conducted extensive clinical trials involving pediatric, adolescent and adult patients to ensure your safety. OraVerse is FDA-approved and has been demonstrated to be safe and effective for dental patients ages 6 and older who weigh no less than 33 lbs.
Primarily geared towards reducing numbness in your lips and tongue, OraVerse should not accelerate or increase any discomfort or inflammation at the treatment site. Local anesthesia affects your tooth and soft tissues differently -- while the numbness in your tooth can subside in less than an hour, it lingers in the lips and tongue for much longer. OraVerse should have little to no effect on reversing tooth numbness, as it will have almost all but worn off by the time it is injected. If you're worried about feeling pain after the numbness wears off, your dentist may choose to prescribe a pain medication.
We want you to have the most comfortable experience possible. It’s a commitment that begins when you walk in the door and extends long after you leave. So if you’re among the many patients who dislike lingering numbness and its limitations, let’s discuss whether OraVerse is the right choice for you during your next dental visit.
