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.

Educational objectives:

  • 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.
