Dentists have an important role to play in the opioid crisis. It is estimated that over 40% of a young adult’s first prescription of an opioid comes from a dentist. This group of patients is the most susceptible to developing an addiction to these drugs. This CE webinar will discuss the various issues of pain management and control with a focus on eliminating the need for opioids. It starts with the initial management of pain by effective local anesthetic administration. The utilization of local anesthetic agents such as articaine has been shown to reduce the initial pain. This is then augmented with longer-acting agents combined with non-steroidal and acetaminophen systemic administration. By using strategies currently available in practice dentists can work to be part of the solution to the opioid epidemic.
