Medical - Medical: Dentistry / local anaesthetics
Spanish term or phrase: duración de acción
Context: Estas propiedades contribuyen a la mayor potencia anestésica de **** y a su mayor ***duración de acción**** en comparación con otros anestésicos locales utilizados en odontología.

My initial thought is to change it slightly and put "anaesthesia time" but then I started to wonder if there's a set phrase for this in English. Is there?
Thanks in advance.

duration of action

I agree with "Duration of action".

You might also say "time of effectiveness", but searching with key words from your context proves that "duration of action" is the commonly used phrase.
