Opiod Epidemic

    As health care professionals, we see how opioid abuse causes devastating destruction in people's lives. Unfortunately, this problem has escalated in recent years and now has national attention.
     For many years Dentistry has been taking steps to prevent widespread abuse of opioid pain medications. When considering prescribing opioids, we conduct a thorough medical and dental history, review current medications and history of drug abuse.
     In the vast majority of cases of dental pain, over the counter, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics (like Ibuprofen and Tylenol) are effective to manage the pain. In fact, we have research showing that a regimen alternating between Ibuprofen and Tylenol is MORE effective than prescription pain medications.
    Dentistry as a whole is using their collective power of prevention to help reverse this epidemic.
