Topical mucosal anesthetic with Benzocaine 20%
Hurricaine® is a topical anesthetic gel and spray, effective within a few seconds, with a pleasant cherry flavor.
Benzocaine (its active substance), has advantages over Lidocaine: Low systemic absorption (1). Quick action, anesthetic effect in 30 seconds (2) and anesthesia duration of 15 to 20 minutes.
Its more widespread use and why it should be present in every clinic. Prevent that unfortunate "first impression" for the patient brought about by injectable anesthesia by first using Hurricaine in the injection area. The patient will feel no pain and will be left with a pleasant taste in the mouth.
By applying a small amount of Hurricaine on the endodontic tip (paper, file, etc.) it is possible to anesthetize pupal remains in 30 seconds.
Apply Hurricaine to the gum around the tooth for pain-free cleaning or scaling.
Extracting temporary teeth
Apply Hurricaine to the gum before proceeding to extract dental pieces.
Avoid injecting anesthesia again by using Hurricaine Gel through a syringe or Hurricaine Spray on the gum where you wish to use the carver and in a few seconds you can proceed with the work.
Prevent the discomfort caused by retraction cord placement when taking impressions by applying Hurricaine first.
Use Hurricaine in the mucosa area where a small incision is to be made. The area will be immediately anesthetized. Also use it to remove sutures without pain.
