Author(s): Dr. Paul Moore
Member Price: $58.00
CE Credit(s): 2
Retail Price: $98.00
Course Created on: 12/31/2019

Safe, effective treatment of acute postoperative pain is essential for patient satisfaction and a successful dental practice. This course will review how, beyond providing a prescription for an opioid-containing analgesic, several strategies are now accepted to improve acute postoperative pain management, including using peripherally acting analgesics and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs preoperatively and intraoperatively and administration of long-acting local anesthetics to delay pain onset.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Develop a rationale for combining two peripherally acting analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen)
  • Incorporate regulations and guidelines regarding opioid use for managing acute pain
  • Discuss recommendations for safe, responsible use of prescription opioid analgesics
