FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know the Dental Pain Eraser™ works?
  • The Dental Pain Eraser™ received FDA regulatory clearance (510k) for in clinic and home Rx use. The FDA clearance of medical devices for use on patients undergoes the most rigorous review and validation process in the world. The defined use of the Dental Pain Eraser is “for the reduction of pain in the oral cavity,” meaning it has broad application for many oral pain issues from tooth, to muscle/ligament, to soft tissue and bone pain related to ALL structures in the oral cavity.
  • In order for the Dental Pain Eraser™ to be on the market and used on patients, many successful, multi-site clinical validations were performed, demonstrating rapid (within 20 seconds) and lasting pain relief (up to 48 hours) with no side effects. Independent US University based, IRB double blind study peer reviewed validation, and additional independent fortune 500 company validation studies performed.
Why should I as a clinician (doctor, dentist, hygienist or nurse) use the Dental Pain Eraser™ in my day to day management of oral pain?

The Dental Pain Eraser™ can help reduce the fear of dental visits and increase dental office visits. Many clinicians are realizing the benefit of eliminating the anesthetic numbing of the patient during and after procedures, assisting in verifying tooth vitality, checking the correct bite with full tactile sensation present, and ease of use and delivery to the patient.

Additionally, because the Dental Pain Eraser™ works so quickly, it will allow dental professionals to perform procedures more quickly thereby freeing up dental chairs to make dental offices work more efficiently (reducing appointment times) and increase profitability.

Offering clinicians an alternative patient take home device that is safe and does not need an opioid or OTC pain prescription is another significant value-add the Dental Pain Eraser delivers. The office will also realize a cost savings and reduced need of multiple anesthetic delivery products.

How long does the Dental Pain Eraser™ last? Is it rechargeable?

The Dental Pain Eraser™ clinical and take-home models have been programmed to shut off after a set time limit to ensure a maximum power and nerve blocking energy wave can be delivered to block the nerve pain signal. Current models are disposable and are not rechargeable and have the following time limitations of function:

  • The Dental Pain Eraser™ clinician model with replacement tips (Professional Chairside Kit, model C300) is programmed to last 330 minutes after which it is then discarded.
  • The Dental Pain Eraser™ patient Rx home model (Home Device, model T300) is programmed to last 100 minutes after which it is then discarded. During our introductory component of patient care, we will be allowing a slightly longer activation time to ensure that patients and offices can become more accustom to use.

Future models will be rechargeable via inductive charge and will have many varying applications on top of pain relief.

Is the Dental Pain Eraser™ safe for kids or only adults?

The Dental Pain Eraser™ has been cleared and approved for use of children and adults. Currently validation and use are for children age 10 and above with observation by an adult.

The Dental Pain Eraser™ is extremely safe with nearly zero possibility of adverse effects, allergic reaction, or harm to a patient.

The over the counter (OTC) unit which is in the approval process will be used for infants who are experiencing teething pain.

Did we receive clinicals on sensitivity relief?

Data on dental pain and sensitivity was utilized for FDA clearance. Dental pain and sensitivity  from an industry leading dental manufacturing and sales company performed their own independent internal study with 12 of their own selected Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs), validating the effectiveness of dental pain and sensitivity relief, especially in the use of de-bond orthodontic high speed polishing hypersensitivity.

Several key independent KOL’s from that study, including Dr. Chad Harrington, Dr. Mark Coreil, and many others have completely converted their private practice models to include the Dental Pain Eraser in the de-bond protocol for sensitivity relief.

Industry leading dental KOL, technology editor of Dental Products Magazine, and product evaluation expert, Dr. Paul Feuerstein, was selected for an independent review of the Dental Pain Eraser (DPE). He completed a nearly yearlong review of the product for sensitivity, aphthous ulcer pain relief, and dental pain, with validation and recommendation to several key product development avenues for further commercialization, distribution, and increased product awareness through education platforms.

How is the Dental Pain Eraser™ administered and how long does it take?

Administration is via 2 routes:

  1. Primary Route of Administration: Apply to buccal root surface (all the way up and down complete root surface) “erasing” vertical and lateral motion application for 30 seconds-this method “communicates” to the pulpal sensory complex via the lateral canal communication to the nerve, PDL neural complex, attached and mucosal neural complex and apical nerve communication.
  2. Secondary Route of Administration: Direct contact enamel/dentin applying for 30 secon
