What is OraVerse?  


OraVerse works to reverse the numbing effects of local dental anesthesia. According to clinical 

studies, the drug can cut the time of numbness at least in half. 


Are You Interested? 

The creation of OraVerse for dental anesthesia reversal has been widely applauded by both dentists and 

patients. In fact, OraVerse was selected as one of the Top 100 Products for 2009 by Dentistry Today 

magazine. But like many dental products that are considered "optional dentistry," your dental insurance 

may not cover the cost of OraVerse. If you’re interested, be sure to ask your dentist about pricing prior to 

receiving dental care. 

Many patients are choosing OraVerse so they can get back to their daily activities without incident and 

schedule appointments at their leisure. But not every dentist offers OraVerse for local anesthesia reversal. 


Role Reversal 

On average, it takes 3-5 hours for local anesthesia to wear off completely. OraVerse decreases residual 

numbness at least twice as fast, allowing you to regain full sensation of your mouth soon after you leave 

the dental office. The active ingredient in OraVerse is phentolamine, which opens blood vessels to increase 

blood flow. 

Administering OraVerse is no different than giving you an injection of local anesthesia. OraVerse is 

immediately injected following the dental procedure in the same location and manner in which your dental 

anesthesia was administered. Since you will already be numb, you won't have to worry about feeling pain 

at the injection site. 


A Safe Bet 

The same drug used in OraVerse has been utilized in other aspects of medicine for over 50 years. The 

makers of OraVerse have conducted extensive clinical trials involving pediatric, adolescent and adult 

patients to ensure your safety. OraVerse is FDA-approved and has been demonstrated to be safe and 

effective for dental patients ages 6 and older who weigh no less than 33 lbs. 

Primarily geared towards reducing numbness in your lips and tongue, OraVerse should not accelerate or 

increase any discomfort or inflammation at the treatment site. Local anesthesia affects your tooth and soft 

tissues differently -- while the numbness in your tooth can subside in less than an hour, it lingers in the 

lips and tongue for much longer. OraVerse should have little to no effect on reversing tooth numbness, as 

it will have almost all but worn off by the time it is injected. If you're worried about feeling pain after the 

numbness wears off, your dentist may choose to prescribe a pain medication.
