OrthoRelief's gumEase is the fist FDA approved cryoanesthetic dental mouthpiece for the US over-the-counter market. Used as a standalone or in conjunction with conventional anesthesia, gumEase provides braces pain relief without the side effects or complications of drugs.
The easy-to-use, disposable device is a breakthrough in mouth and braces pain management. GumEase works by achieving a regional pain block by the local application of cold through the gumEase to the Maxillofacial nerves. The nerve fibers are then anesthetized through the use of cryoanesthesia and can no longer transmit pain impulses to the brain. Patients can apply gumEase postoperatively as needed and reuse without side effects by storing in a household freezer in accordance with directions provided.
