Enhanced Recovery Through Non-Opioid Pain Relief
Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons is taking action to combat the ongoing opioid epidemic. Previously, narcotic pain medications were the only option to alleviate serious pain following a surgical procedure. Now with EXPAREL, we can provide patients with long-lasting pain relief that reduces or eliminates the need for opioid pain medication.
During your surgical procedure, your oral surgeon can administer EXPAREL directly to the surgical site. It is a single injection that lasts for up to 96 hours and works by numbing the nerves in that area. The first few days following surgery can be uncomfortable, but with EXPAREL, you can focus on recovering without worrying about pain. In addition to EXPAREL, our practice offers a variety of anesthesia and sedation options to choose from when undergoing any type of procedure.
Combating the Opioid Epidemic
Opioids are often prescribed after surgery to help manage post-operative pain. There are tighter restrictions surrounding their use, however, millions of Americans abuse opioid medication. This highly addictive option can lead to drug addiction and a spectrum of side effects including nausea, vomiting, depression, confusion, drowsiness, and constipation. The abuse of opioids can even lead to death.
Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons provides EXPAREL at all four of our office locations. When administered during surgery, EXPAREL can reduce or even eliminate the need for opioid pain medication altogether, resulting in a faster and healthier recovery for our patients.
