Opioid Free Pain Management Treatment
At Lehigh Valley Oral Surgery & Implant Center, we go to great lengths to ensure you recover comfortably from your procedure. That’s why we’re happy to provide EXPAREL at our practice, an innovative new option for pain management that reduces the need for narcotics.
EXPAREL is a non-narcotic numbing medication that’s injected directly into your surgical site during the procedure. It slowly releases a local anesthetic called bupivacaine throughout your body, with the effects lasting up to four days. As a result, EXPAREL treats your pain symptoms well after you leave our office.
Since the first few days after treatment are when the most pain occurs, many patients who receive EXPAREL use fewer narcotic pain medications. Some patients are even able to avoid these medications entirely.
Reducing the use of opioids and other narcotics is beneficial in several ways. First of all, narcotic drugs can cause a range of negative side effects including nausea, drowsiness, and more. Furthermore, narcotics can be highly addictive and lead to patients forming unhealthy habits.
