Rarely Used. Oraverse (phentolamine mesylate) injection is the local anesthetic (la) reversal agent that accelerates the return to normal sensation & function following restorative & periodontal maintenance procedures. Oraverse is indicated for the reversal of soft-tissue anesthesia when a vasoconstrictor was part of the la. It dilates the local blood vessels to allow the la to leave the injection site faster.
