Long-Lasting Topical Anesthetic

Available from your local dental dealer, Cetacaine® Topical Anesthetic allows a hygienist to put a patient at ease immediately.

Applicable for all mucous membranes except the eyes, Cetacaine contains benzocaine, butyl aminobenzoate, and tetracaine hydrochloride.

Used safely for over 50 years, Cetacaine is available as a liquid, spray, or gel. For more information about Cetacaine, visit www.cetylite.com or call 1-800-257-7740.
