Management of Acute Dental Pain
 and Appropriate Opioid Prescribing

Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. (National Institute on Drug Abuse)

Management of acute odontogenic pain is accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates both opioid and non-opioid analgesics. However, moderate to severe dental pain often occurs well after office hours and away from our immediate supervision. Thus, it is critical for clinicians to be able to accurately identify a patient’s need for pain control, develop an individualized pain management plan and assess the efficacy of analgesic agents employed.

  1. I am serving as president of the Lincoln District Dental Association in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are hoping to get a speaker for February or March to talk about opioids. I’m thinking a 6 hour course on a Friday if possible. Can you give me information as to costs and availability? Thank you!
