What is OraVerse™?

If you are like many patients, the local anesthesia that is sometimes required for dental procedures creates lingering numbness and can be annoying and uncomfortable. But a new measure of comfort has become available to dental patients.

Now FDA-approved, Dr. Ron Konig is proud to announce OraVerse™, a product that helps to bring patients out of anesthesia more quickly and safely. OraVerse™ is the only product of its kind to quickly reverse the effects of your anesthesia so you can speak, drink, and eat normally in just about half the time as the usual local dental anesthetic. It has been proven to accelerate the return of normal sensation and function following many routine dental treatments. Learn more by calling Dr. Konig's Houston office at 713-668-2289  today.

New to the Dental Field

While OraVerse™ (generic phentolamine mesylate) has been used for several decades in the medical industry, it was just recently approved by the FDA for the reversal of soft-tissue anesthesia. OraVerse™ may reduce your hesitance to obtain the dental treatment that you need. OraVerse™ will make your procedure more tolerable and you won't have the numb feeling in your mouth the rest of day.

OraVerse™ is an anesthetic reversal agent. Essentially, it is injected into the mouth in order to help reverse the effects of soft-tissue anesthesia. Studies indicate OraVerse™, on average, reduced the numbness caused by anesthesia by almost half. It is used for the reversal of soft-tissue anesthesia, (anesthesia of the lip and tongue, and the associated problems resulting from an intraoral injection of a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor).

Why OraVerse™?

After receiving anesthesia for your dentistry procedure, numbness can last for up to five hours. This numbness results in difficulty eating, drinking and speaking, and can prevent patients from returning to their normal, everyday activities. Lingering numbness can also result in injury to the mouth, such as accidental biting of the tongue.

OraVerse™ has been proven safe for use in both children, age 6 or older, and adults. It is not only beneficial to patients but also to the dentists who will be administering it. It is very simple to administer and makes patients more inclined to have their dental work done before problems become worse.
