About the webinar: Beyond providing a prescription for 20 tablets of an opioid-containing analgesic, several strategies have now become accepted in dental practice to improve the efficacy of acute postoperative pain management. The use of peripherally-acting analgesics and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs preoperatively and intra-operatively, the administration of long-acting local anesthetics to delay pain onset, and the demonstrated enhanced pain-relieving properties of combinations of peripherally-acting analgesics, such as ibuprofen combined with acetaminophen, have become common in many dental practices. These alternative strategies may decrease the reliance on prescription opioid pain relievers following dental surgery.
- Explain the rationale for combining the two peripherally-acting analgesics acetaminophen (Tylenol®) and ibuprofen (Advil®).
- Understand the importance of recent changes made in opioid/acetaminophen formulations containing analgesics such as Vicodin ES®.
- Discuss patient recommendations for the safe and responsible use of prescription opioid analgesics.
