Avoid Side Effects of Anesthesia

One serious problem people can have with local anesthesia is biting their cheeks, tongue, or lips while they’re numb. Because you can’t feel when you bite down, you don’t know how hard you are biting and suffer serious injury. With OraVerse, the feeling in your mouth returns sooner, thereby reducing the likelihood you could injure your lips, tongue, or cheeks.

Another potential problem is associated with drinking hot liquids. Many of us Alaskans enjoy a cup of hot coffee or tea. While you are numb, you might not realize quite how hot a beverage is and you can burn yourself. You may also spill on yourself, causing burns elsewhere. Getting feeling back sooner will help you avoid this risk.

Finally, there’s the embarrassment that can come with residual numbness. You may feel self-conscious if you can’t speak clearly, experience drooling, or part of your face is drooping. Trying to avoid people seeing you like this can limit your ability to schedule dental appointments or cause you to take additional time off from work.

What Are OraVerse Reverse Anesthetics?

OraVerse is the first and only FDA-approved product to rapidly reverse the effects of local dental anesthetic and Dr. Kendall was one of the first dentists in Alaska to offer this innovative treatment.

It typically takes 2-3 hours to recover from soft tissue anesthesia. With OraVerse, patients can return to a normal sensation and function in about half that time, making it easier to get back to your life.

You can be ready for that afternoon meeting or intimate dinner in short order – no need to cancel your plans because you went to the dentist.

How Does OraVerse Work?


After administering your local anesthetic and completing your dental work, Dr. Kendall will administer a second shot, this time of OraVerse, to begin the reversal process. Afraid it will hurt? No need! OraVerse is delivered in the same spot as your first shot and because you’re already numb, you won’t even feel it.

The drug in OraVerse expands the blood vessels in the treated area, allowing your body to remove and eliminate the local anesthesia faster.

Are OraVerse Reverse Anesthetics safe?

OraVerse’s anti-numbing treatment has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective for adults and teens, and even children as young as six-years-old can be given OraVerse safely. In fact, although this reverse anesthetic treatment is brand new, the drug in OraVerse has been used in other medical situations since 1952.
