Dentists Now Approve The 7-day Limit On Opioids

Dentists have expressed support for a 7-day limit on opioid prescriptions. This comes after an awareness that opioid addiction is ruining people and their families. Here’s more.

– The rise in opioid addiction is highest in young adults with dental issues like impacted wisdom teeth, cavities and dead pulp cavities.

– According to studies, a dentist can substitute opioids with other equally powerful medication like ibuprofen and Tylenol.

– People with chronic pain diseases like arthritis are also prone to opioid addiction.

Please consult your dentist about other pain relievers.
