How to Find the Right Dentist for You
We all have benefited from medical research advances.
However the research by Big Phama and academicians who need to publish or perish needs to be examined for safety and utility. Just because we can do a medical procedure is not sufficient reason to do it.
It is probably possible to transplant an Appendix from one patient to another, but the only benefit would be for the surgeon (Fee) and hospital (Occupied Bed). Certainly the patient would not benefit from another Appendix.
It was with this in mind that I approached the new use for and old drug (phentolamine) with a new proprietery name: OraVerse.
This is a drug designed to administered after a dental procedure to reverse the effects of the local anesthetic and hasten the return of normal sensation in one’s lips and tongue.
OraVerse works to reopen the circulation in the anesthetized area to flush the local anesthetic away.
OraVerse requires the patient get TWO shots to work. One injection for the numbing Oneinjection for the reversal.
The OraVerse injection costs upwards of $20.00 versus NO additional injection and just allow the anesthetic to gently lift over a slightly longer time.
Am I missing something here?
In my experience, dental patients want to minimize the number of injections—not the numbness.
OraVerse has all the attractiveness of an Appendix Transplant.
