LANCASTER, Pa. /PRNewswire/ -- Dental patients hate leaving the dentist still feeling numb, and for some the lingering effects could disrupt their daily activities.
For busy people, precious time can be hindered by the impaired ability to eat, drink and speak normally. Returning to their jobs or daily activities can be delayed after a visit to the dentist.
Children can chew on their numb lips and cheeks causing oral hematomas.
Diabetics may lose the ability to maintain their insulin levels by not being able to eat following a procedure.
OraVerse (phentolamine mesylate) is the first and only product to rapidly reverse the lingering numbness of the lip and tongue from local dental anesthetic. OraVerse cuts the patient's time being numb in half. It is administered by the dentist immediately following routine procedures such as a filling or crown prep, so the patient can return to their normal routine faster.
