About the Session:

Opioids have the potential for misuse, diversion and addition. Currently dentists write over 12% of the total immediate release opioids prescribed in the United States. This program will review the issues of acute pain management in dentistry and discuss strategies for minimizing and/or eliminating the need for opioid prescriptions. Appropriate pain management will be reviewed including pre-emptive analgesia and newer medications that are an option for reducing post operative pain without the need for an opioid. This program will also fulfill the mandatory one hour education on opioid prescribing required for maintaining licensure in Connecticut.
