Today, the United States is in an opioid crisis. These medications are often prescribed to manage severe post-operative pain.
While oral surgery can be quite uncomfortable., there are many modalities to manage the pain in a safe manner.
One of the most convincing statistics is that teens who receive opioid pain medications to treat postoperative pain during oral surgery have a 2.7-fold higher chance of overdose with opioids later in life, relieve pain and pain, and are far less risky as opioids.
These include over-the-counter and prescription medicines as well as opium-free injectable medicines. These are used at the surgical site and are designed to enter your body over a longer period of time to provide lasting pain relief and reduce the need for potentially dangerous drugs.
We look forward to hearing from you about this and can assure you that we strive to provide the best possible care.
