What is OraVerse?

Numbness can be an issue for some patients, so much so they’ll shy away from undergoing dental procedures. OraVerse provides a solution to these cases.
Numbness, caused by the use of local anesthetic, can take over 2 hours to subside in the upper lip and more than 2.5 hours on the bottom lip. With Oraverse, You will start to feel sensation in about 50 – 70 minutes.
This makes your dental experience more comfortable as the numbness won’t linger long after your appointment anymore. You won’t have to endure the loss of function for several hours.
OraVerse is also easy to use. It doesn’t require additional training and it can be administered to kids ages six and above, and weighing at least 33 lbs.
Manufacturers spent years studying the effectiveness and safety of OraVerse. The active ingredient used for the product, called Phentolamine, is not a newcomer in the healthcare industry. It has been used in the medical field since 1972.
Clinical trials conducted for OraVerse safety among children, adolescent, and adult age groups all yielded positive results.
How OraVerse Works
OraVerse is usually given at the end of the procedure. It is injected in the same area where the local anesthetic had been administered. The recommended dose depends on the patient’s weight and age.
Phentolamine works to widen blood vessels and encourage blood flow. It counters vasoconstriction (narrowing down of blood vessels) that local anesthetics cause.
The local anesthetic is then absorbed into the bloodstream faster and the duration of any undesirable effects is shortened.
Benefits of OraVerse
The use of local anesthetic can leave patients unable to speak, drink, or eat normally after a dental procedure.
Some patients have the tendency to bite their lips, tongue, or cheeks when they’re numb. This can result in altered appearance, swelling, lesions, bleeding, and pain.
In addition, young patients are naturally curious. They are more prone to accidental biting or pinching after being administered with a local anesthetic. With Oraverse, the risk of injuries is minimized as the effects of the anesthetic wear off faster.
Patients concerned about numbness after receiving anesthetic can now receive treatment with the confidence they will not have to just wait it out as they have before. Both children and adults can improve their dental experience and be more willing to keep their dentist appointments.
OraVerse can benefit almost any patient. You can minimize drooling, and talk, smile, eat, and drink as you normally would, in half the time.
