For centuries opioids have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families, and our dental practices? Today we recognize that the quality of the pain as well as the quantity can be better managed with non-opioid medications. This brief CE webinar will define the quality of post-operative dental pain and review the pharmacologic agents best suited to treat that pain.
Following this webinar the participant will be able to:
• describe the nature of post-operative dental pain.
• name three opioid-alternative analgesics to treat dental pain.
• list side effects of opioid analgesics.
