Dr. Hedge and Dr. Frazar are pleased to announce that our dental office now offers OraVerse anesthesia reversal. Released in February 2009, OraVerse is the first and only product that promptly reverses the numbness caused by local anesthesia. With OraVerse, you’ll no longer have to endure the limitations caused by lingering facial numbness.
Normally, the effects of local anesthesia remain for about 3 to 5 hours. The numbness results in difficulty speaking, chewing, smiling, drinking, and occasionally causes drooling. Our dentists or our in-house periodontist, Dr. Hanna, will administer OraVerse directly after treatment, and in about half the time, you’ll be back to your old self again.
