FDA-approved and the first of its kind, the DentiPatch is a Band-Aid-like sticker that your dentist places on top of your gums to numb the area in minutes. The adhesive strip delivers lidocaine (an anesthetic) into the gums and lasts for about an hour.

Gum membranes are very thin and vascular and can quickly absorb the numbing gel. However, DentiPatch is not a substitute for traditional anesthesia, but rather to take the edge off a shot. The topical delivery method can only penetrate the uppermost levels of soft tissue, which is why it’s best used as a pre-injection treatment.
