Long-Lasting Topical Anesthetic
Available from your local dental dealer, Cetacaine® Topical Anesthetic allows a hygienist to put a patient at ease immediately. Onset is within 30 seconds with a deep, penetrating anesthesia that lasts up to 30 minutes, making even scaling and planing comfortable. It also helps control pain and suppresses the gag reflex. Applicable for all mucous membranes except the eyes, Cetacaine contains benzocaine, butyl aminobenzoate, and tetracaine hydrochloride. It is the effect of these three combined active ingredients that produces the extended duration of anesthesia andthe resulting comfort. Used safely for over 50 years, Cetacaine is available as a liquid, spray, or gel. For more information about Cetacaine, visit www.cetylite.com or call 1-800-257-7740.
