Pain Management for Dental Patients Who Are in Recovery
Dr. Jamie Alexander, founder of Recovery Dentistry in Boynton Beach, FL has extensive knowledge and experience working with with patients in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction. As a result of his work, Dr. Alexander has developed four goals when it comes to handling dental pain management with his recovery patients:
- To take care of your urgent dental needs to provide relief from dental pain.
- To deliver adequate local anesthetic during dental procedures to block local pain and at the same time not endanger your health.
- To counsel you in post-operative management of any discomfort, such as using an over-the-counter non-opioid pain reliever (for example, ibuprofen) and applying an ice pack to the outside of the cheek to ease swelling.
- To make sure you are comfortable, have all your questions answered, are fully alert, and are at ease before you walk out our door.
