OraVerse in Atlanta
Anesthesia is a useful and necessary tool for dental procedures that require surgery. Unfortunately, the lingering numbing effects afterwards are often uncomfortable. You may notice that you drool uncontrollably or have trouble eating, drinking and can’t speak clearly. This sensation can last anywhere from a few hours to a day.
At Atlanta Smiles & Wellness, Drs. Dina Giesler and Marianna Kovitch dedicate their time and practice to ensuring that each patient’s visit with us is a comfortable and convenient one. For dental services that include local anesthesia, we offer OraVerse, a safe and effective product that reverses the unwanted numbing sensation that lingers after treatment. OraVerse has proven to reverse the effects of anesthesia in half the normal time, allowing patients to speak, smile, eat and return to their normal activities after dental treatment sooner than ever before.
How Does OraVerse Work?
OraVerse is made of phentolamine mesylate, a vasodilator that expands the blood vessels and helps quickly remove anesthesia in the target area. Your dentist will inject OraVerse into the lips and tongue immediately after your procedure and while you are still numbed, so you will not feel any pain at all.
The average time it takes to recover from soft tissue anesthesia is three to five hours. In clinical trials, patients who were given OraVerse were able to regain normal sensation twice as fast as those who did not receive OraVerse. Patients who received OraVerse were able to smile, speak and drink sooner than those who did not receive OraVerse. Drooling after dental treatment with anesthesia was also minimized with OraVerse.
Who Can Benefit from OraVerse?
OraVerse is not administered to all patients. Prior to your dental procedure, you should consider how much time you can devote to your recovery. Patients who must return to work or school immediately after their procedure can benefit from the reversing effects of OraVerse. If you are interested in receiving OraVerse, please let our team know prior to your procedure so we can prepare accordingly.
OraVerse is also helpful for individuals (particularly children) who have a tendency to chew on their lips, tongue and mouth when they are numb, sometimes to the point of creating sores, lesions or other damage to the mouth.
Is OraVerse Safe?
OraVerse is FDA approved and proven to be safe and effective in adults and children over the age of six. Side effects are rare. Before recommending OraVerse to you, our team will discuss the possible side effects in detail with you.
