Opioids unnecessary for dental work

Unfortunately, deaths from opioid overdose have increased over the years, mostly involving teens. According to studies, most opioid addictions start at the dentist’s office. So, are opioids necessary?

Key takeaways:

– Studies show that combining acetaminophen with ibuprofen can decrease inflammation with few side effects.

– Alternative painkillers include Advil and Tylenol, icing for 20 minutes or getting a Botox injection to control jaw pain.

– Opioids can generally be avoided, except in some circumstances.

If you aren’t experiencing extreme pain, talk to your dentist about replacing opioids with other pain killers.
