... with scaling-is this proper? Is full mouth exposure to cetacaine contraindicated?
Some clinicians use cetacaine diluted w/mouthrinse such as listerine preprocedual for sensitive area
Added 23 May 2014:
I'm familiar with the drug info and usage but am asking about specifically rinsing with it as this is not a listed application form.
Cetacaine liquid is used for treating pain in certain areas (mouth, throat, ears, vagina, rectum). It may also be used to numb these areas before medical procedures. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Cetacaine liquid in a local anesthetic. It works by numbing sensitive and painful areas. Do NOT use Cetacaine liquid if you are allergic to any ingredient in Cetacaine liquid or to other local anesthetics (butacaine, procaine) Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
Some medical conditions may interact with Cetacaine liquid. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:
if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
if the skin at the application area is damaged or inflamed
if you have an active illness or you have low levels of an enzyme called cholinesterase
Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Cetacaine liquid. Because little, if any, of Cetacaine liquid is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.
Ask your health care provider if Cetacaine liquid may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.
