Profile Profile: Cetacaine® Topical Anesthetic Liquid by Cetylite Industries Inc

Prescription Topical Anesthetic Offers Long Duration.

Rx Cetacaine® Needle-Free Topical Anesthetic (14% benzocaine, 2% butamben, 2% tetracaine HCl) delivers a rapid, 30-second onset with a long duration of up to 60 minutes when used as directed. It is indicated for use on all accessible mucosa, except the eyes. Trusted by dental professionals for more than 50 years, Cetacaine Topical Anesthetic Liquid is applied drop by drop into periodontal pockets, and only the amount needed for treatment is drawn into the single-use syringe, so there is no waste. Patients will appreciate the comfort, easy application, and mild banana flavor, without the need to inject.
