Quality Formulation: The anesthetic is formulated with articaine hydrochloride 4% with epinephrine 1:100,000 and articaine hydrochloride 4% with epinephrine 1:200,000 anesthetic.

Fast Acting: After injection, it takes effect within 1-9 minutes and provides full anesthesia for about one hour for infiltrations and up to 2 hours for nerve block.

Shelf Life: Orabloc can be stored at room temperature for up to 24 months.

Added Plus: Orabloc is aseptically manufactured and requires less epinephrine overage, so there’s less vasoconstrictor in each injection. The American Heart Association recommends using the lowest possible quantity of epinephrine.
