Management of acute odontogenic pain is accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates both opioid and nonopioid analgesics. It is critical for dental clinicians to employ appropriate prescribing practices. We’ll cover best practices when assessing pain control and educating patients on opioid-associated risks and safety. This program provides techniques for effectively assessing and managing dental pain, appropriately prescribing analgesics, educating patients on adverse effects and proper handling of opioids.
