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

Oraqix® is first applied to the gums around the area receiving treatment. The gel is applied using a blunt-tipped applicator. After waiting 30 seconds, the pockets around the teeth are filled with Oraqix®. After waiting an additional 30 seconds, treatment can begin. Delaying treatment does not enhance the anesthetic effect. The scaling and root planing procedure, or alternative procedure, can then be completed.
