The opioid crisis in our country continues to rage on, with an increasing rate of addiction and overdose deaths related to prescribed opioid-based narcotic medications. As part of our dedication to providing the safest and most effective treatment for our patients, Dr. Martin and the team at Placer Oral & Dental Implant Surgery offers a powerful and long-lasting opioid-free pain management medication called Exparel in our surgical treatment plans to head off opioid misuse, addiction, and side effects before they have a chance to begin. When Exparel is chosen as part of your treatment plan, Dr. Martin will administer this medication directly to your surgical site while you are still under anesthesia, where it will then effectively reduce your post-operative discomfort for up to four days. No narcotics required!
With Exparel as part of your surgical treatment plan, you can experience these benefits:
With Exparel on board for the recovery period after your oral surgery procedure, you will experience lasting and powerful relief from post-surgical discomfort without the need for opioid-based narcotic pain medications. Because of these benefits, Exparel is quickly becoming the preferred method of post-operative pain management for both oral surgeons and patients.
We are excited about the use of Exparel in our practice because it helps us protect our patients from the risks and side effects of narcotic prescriptions while also helping our patients experience smooth, comfortable recoveries. We will be happy to discuss if Exparel is the ideal choice for your treatment plan when you come in for your consultation.
