PHARMACOLOGY : Dental pain management: Opioids, NSAIDs and other options

The management of pain in dentistry encompasses a number of procedural issues, including the delivery of anesthetic and the management of postprocedural pain. 

As well as pain diagnosis, management strategies for orofacial conditions that cause pain in the face and head, and the management of pain in special populations. 


Given the extensive nature of the topic, this video reviews pain definitions and mechanisms, acute versus chronic pain, and focuses on management strategies related to anesthetic delivery and the control of pain following dental procedures.
