Recently, I have adopted a new product to my New York City dental practice called Oraverse. It reverses the affects of dental anesthesia and is the antidote to the numbness you feel when you get anesthesia. Many patients hate to get numb simply because the after-effects are bothersome. Only a handful of people would rather not have anesthesia and deal with the possible pain. I -- unlike the popular belief -- do not like pain, nor do I wish to inflict it on others. So, for the most part we will get patients numb before working; on occasion it is useful to cause the anesthesia to wear off faster by using Oraverse.
