By now, numbness is something most of you are used to at the dentist after an injection of local anesthetic. We now have a proven way that may speed up the return of sensation in the soft tissues after routine care.
OraVerse is a breakthrough that reverses unwanted lingering numbness after routine dental procedures where local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor was used. We'll administer it immediately following your procedure to speed up the return of sensation in the soft tissues of the mouth.
We're always looking for ways to improve your dental experience. 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.
OraVerse is indicated for the reversal of soft-tissue anesthesia, i.e., anesthesia of the lip and tongue, and the associated functional deficits resulting from an intraoral submucosal injection of a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor.
OraVerse is not recommended for use in children less than 6 years of age or weighing less than 33 lbs.
In clinical trials, the most common adverse events with OraVerse (phentolamine mesylate) were post procedural pain, injection site pain, increased or decreased heart rate and headache. Following injections of phentolamine in non-dental procedures, substantial decreases in blood pressure have occurred which resulted in heart attacks as well as spasms and blocked blood vessels in the brain. Although such effects are uncommon with OraVerse, you should alert your doctor if you experience an increase in heart rate or abnormal heart rhythm (palpitations), particularly if you have a history of heart disease.
