Children and adults have a tendency to bite their lips and even the inside of their cheeks when they are numb from anesthesia. They can’t feel themselves biting their lip and so they continue (unfortunately) until they have chewed so hard they have damaged their lips and they have become swollen and sore, sometimes to the point of being cut and bleeding!

Adults and young people become embarrassed being numb because they can’t speak clearly, smile or even drink properly they feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Drooling becomes an issue.

OraVerse makes a difference

OraVerse is a breakthrough that reverses unwanted lingering numbness after routine dental procedures where local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor (link to definition) was used. In clinical trials, the patients were able to regain normal sensation twice as fast vs, the control group.

These studies* showed that on average people who are given OraVerse not only return to normal sensation twice as fast, but they can smile, speak, and drink normally sooner, and drooling is minimized.

Who has time to be numb?

When you receive an injection not only do your lips stay numb but your whole upper and lower jaw does as well! Your entire mouth can be numb sometimes for as long as 4 hours (depending on the procedure your dentist performed).
