What is OraVerse?
OraVerse is the first and only product to rapidly reverse the lingering numbness of the lip and tongue from local dental anesthetic that contains a vasoconstrictor.
OraVerse is administered by your dentist immediately following your procedure to speed up the return of sensation in the soft tissues of the mouth.
OraVerse is not recommended for use in children less than 6 years of age or weighing less than 33 lbs.
Can numbness be reversed?
Numbness from a local anesthetic is something most of us are used to at the dentist. But lingering numbness can be limiting, affecting your speech, your smile, and your ability to drink. You may even catch yourself drooling.
OraVerse is a breakthrough that reverses unwanted lingering numbness after routine dental procedures where a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor was used.
OraVerse is indicated for reversal of the soft-tissue anesthesia, i.e., anesthesia of the lip and tongue, and the associated functional deficits resulting from an intraoral submucosal injection of a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor.
OraVerse is not recommended for use in children less than 6 years of age or weighing less than 15 kg (33 lbs).
The most common adverse event with OraVerse greater than the control group was injection site pain (5% vs. 4%).
Common side effects:
- In clinical trials*, the adverse events of OraVerse were similar to the control group.

Regain your function faster.
The trials also showed that OraVerse patients can smile, speak and drink normally sooner and drooling is minimized.
Important Safety Information
In clinical trials, the most common adverse events with OraVerse (phentolamine mesylate) were post procedural pain, injection site pain, increased or decreased heart rate and headache. Following injections of phentolamine in non-dental procedures, substantial decreases in blood pressure have occurred which resulted in heart attacks as well as spasms and blocked blood vessels in the brain. Although such effects are uncommon with OraVerse, you should alert your doctor if you experience an increase in heart rate or abnormal heart rhythm (palpitations), particularly if you have a history of heart disease.
