Now It's Possible: Reversing Numbness with OraVerse™
Now you can get on with your day after routine dental procedures, thanks to a new product that reverses the effects of local anesthesia. This new measure of comfort is for patients who dislike the lingering numbness that can last for three to five hours after leaving our office.
To deliver superior care, we're always finding better ways to ensure your comfort and improve your dental experience. OraVerse is the first and only product proven safe and effective in accelerating a return to normal sensation and function after a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor has been used. So now in about half the time, you'll be talking, smiling and drinking just like normal.1 And OraVerse can benefit nearly any patient, but is not recommended for children under six years of age or weighing less than 15 kg (33 lbs).
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.
Important Safety Information
Tachycardia, bradycardia, and cardiac arrhythmia may occur with the use of phentolamine or other alpha-adrenergic blocking agents. Although such effects are uncommon with OraVerse (phentolamine mesylate), clinicians should be alert to the signs and symptoms of these events, particularly in patients with a history of cardiovascular disease. Following parenteral use of phentolamine at doses between 5 to 15 times higher than the recommended dose of OraVerse, myocardial infarction, and cerebrovascular spasm and occlusion have been reported, usually in association with marked hypotensive episodes producing shock-like states.
1 Median time to recovery of normal sensation was reduced by 85 minutes (55%) in the mandible and by 83 minutes (62%) in the maxilla compared to control. Median time to recovery of normal function was reduced by 60 minutes (50%) in the mandible and by 45 minutes (43%) in the maxilla.
DentalVibe® Painless Oral Injection System
Do you fear the dentist because of potentially painful procedures, or because you fear needles? You no longer need to be afraid! Our office uses the patented technology of DentalVibe, which uses vibration to eliminate pain from injections. This helps us create an anxiety-free dental experience, inspiring you to have a brighter, healthier smile.
The DentalVibe provides gentle vibration to the site of the dental injection. This vibration overloads the nerve that sends pain signals to the brain so that you don’t register the pain or discomfort from the injection. The sound of the vibration creates an added distraction, and the vibration also helps disperse the anesthesia once it’s injected so that it can work even faster.
Patients who experience an injection with the DentalVibe are often unaware when the injection actually occurs. The DentalVibe is especially helpful in reducing dental fear among children. In fact, many patients have said that if such a tool had been available when they were younger, their dental fears would never have begun.
