A local anesthetic makes it possible to receive involved dental care with minimized discomfort. While this can make it easier to undergo important procedures, it can mean leaving a procedure while still experiencing numbness in your mouth. This can lead to embarrassing problems, like slurred speech and drooling. It can also cause you to bite the inside of your lip or cheeks, to the point that they can be cut open, and bleed. If you receive a restorative treatment, and a local anesthetic is administered, OraVerse can reduce the amount of time it takes for the effects of a localized anesthetic to wear off.
The Effects Of Local Anesthesia
Because of the numbness associated with local anesthetic, you may have problems speaking, eating, or drinking after a procedure. You could even begin to drool without realizing it! This numbness can also cause people to bite their inner lip, or the inside of their cheek. This can continue until an open sore develops, which can potentially develop an infection.
Faster Recovery After A Dental Procedure
Localized anesthetics can help offset the potential discomfort you might experience when you receive root canal therapy from your dentist, or if you have your wisdom teeth removed. By using OraVerse to cut down on the time it takes for an anesthetic to wear off, your dentist can help you spend less time dealing with the loss of feeling in your mouth. This means you can return to work or school with fewer concerns about how the anesthetic might still be affecting you.
