Management of acute dental pain is accomplished through a clinical approach that successfully incorporates opioid and non-opioid analgesics. However, this normally occurs outside the dental office, away from our immediate supervision and we are often faced with the difficult task of managing patient pain while also avoiding adverse outcomes for both our patient and our communities. Thus, it is critical for clinicians to accurately identify the need for pain control and associated risks, and to assess the efficacy of analgesic agents to be administered. This program will provide an overview of effective dental pain management and identification of addiction. Special emphasis will also be given to appropriate practices of prescribing opioids and individualized patient care planning.
