Many people hate feeling numb for hours after their dental procedures. Our caring dentist at SeaSide Dentistry uses the innovative OraVerse® technology to reduce the amount of time you spend numb after leaving our office. To learn more about the benefits of OraVerse in Cedar Point, North Carolina, and to make your appointment with Dr. Donna Gentry, please call us today at 252-764-2784.
OraVerse reduces numbness following treatment to help you return to your day-to-day activities sooner and make your post-treatment recovery quicker, easier, and more comfortable. This technology has been known to reduce numbness of the upper lip to about 50 minutes, and numbness of the lower lip to about 70 minutes – less than half the duration of numbness following traditional numbing treatments.
OraVerse can be safely used on both adults and children over the age of 6. OraVerse is an especially helpful tool when treating children. Children who receive a procedure often play with or chew on their lips, tongues, and other areas of the mouth while they are numb. This behavior can cause sores and damage without the child (or their parents) noticing until the numbness wears off. Reducing the amount of time your child spends numb helps to minimize the likelihood that your child will injure themselves and require additional treatment.
We welcome you to contact us today for more information about OraVerse, and to schedule your consultation with our experienced dentist.
