One of the most common complaints we hear from patients at Rigby Advanced Dental is that their anesthesia (numbness) lasts too long after a procedure is complete. A quick trip to the dentist with dental local anesthesia can turn into an afternoon of numb cheeks, slurred speech, a crooked smile and maybe even a little drool. But it doesn’t have to anymore. There’s a new solution for this problem called OraVerse.
OraVerse is an anesthesia reversal agent that diminishes the numbing effects following a dental procedure. This helps you get back to your normal routine much more quickly than the average recovery time.
For those of you in the workforce, time is money, and not being able to take phone calls or attend meetings represents potentially lost productivity and sales. Also, for purely cosmetic reasons, reducing mouth numbness and swelling helps restore your face to its natural look—usually in about half the time it would take to wear off on its own. OraVerse is used to restore function back to your mouth more efficiently to get you back to your daily activities.
Your dental professional administers OraVerse through an injection after your procedure is complete—the same way your local anesthetic was given. The most common OraVerse side effect is injection site pain, similar to that of the anesthesia itself. Dr. Rigby will determine the correct dosage for your specific situation.
According to OraVerse clinical trials, the median recovery time for normal sensation in the upper lip was 50 minutes for OraVerse patients, compared to 133 minutes for the control group. In the lower lip, the median time was 70 minutes for OraVerse patients, compared to 155 minutes for the control group.
