Oraqix
Forget the Needle! We offer needle-free pain relief for many dental procedures!

Oraqix® is a needle-free anesthetic that is administered topically and below the gum line. Oraqix® is effective and efficient for many dental procedures and offers our patients a needle-free alternative to traditional anesthetics.

We may recommend this alternative anesthesia for several reasons, including:
  • A needle-free option has been found to be overwhelmingly preferred over traditional anesthetics. In clinical studies, 70% of patients preferred Oraqix® to a needle injection.
  • Numbing occurs quickly, usually within 30 seconds.
  • The sensation of numbness usually lasts about 20 minutes. So, normal sensation is typically returned by the time your appointment is completed!
  • Oraqix® is site specific which allows the doctor to selectively numb specific areas of the mouth.

How it Works

       

1. Oraqix® is first applied to
the gums around the area
receiving treatment. The gel
is applied using a blunt-
tipped applicator.

    2. After waiting 30 seconds,
the pockets around the teeth
are filled with Oraqix®. 


       

3. After waiting an
additional 30 seconds,
treatment can begin.
Delaying treatment does
not enhance the anesthetic
effect.
    4. The scaling and root
planing procedure, or
alternative procedure, can
then be completed.
