Exparel Non-Opioid Pain Management in Glendale provided by at

Exparel Opioid-Free Pain Management at Arrowhead Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.At Arrowhead Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer a safe and effective alternative to prescription narcotics that reduces or even eliminates your pain following a surgical procedure. The medication is called Exparel, and it is slowly revolutionizing pain management. The use of Exparel during your oral surgery can help you avoid the potentially harmful side effects of narcotics, mainly opioids.

Changing The Face of Post-Surgical Recovery

Post-surgical pain is a common consequence of Oral Surgery and can interfere with recovery, as well as with activities of daily living, for several days after surgery. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) recently released some prescribing recommendations that urge the use of non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medications as a first-line therapy for managing patients acute and post-operative pain. When the amount of discomfort requires the use of Opioids, safe prescription practices should be used.

Quick Facts about Exparel

•  Exparel keeps the surgical area numb for a total of THREE days.
•  Exparel is not a narcotic medication
•  Exparel gives long-lasting pain control, meaning you may need fewer pain medications
•  Exparel is only for patients 18 years of age and older
•  Exparel works by numbing the area of your body where your surgery was performed, unlike opioids, which affect your whole body

In lieu of the fact that we as a nation are experiencing an Opioid crisis, we at Arrowhead Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery understand that patients are concerned about the use of Opioids. We recently undertook the use of Exparel in our practice to improve post-surgical anesthesia (long-term) and to decrease the need and use of post-operative narcotics.

Please inquire with Dr. Allard and his AOMS team if the use of this long-acting local anesthetic is something you would like to consider as part of your overall treatment regimen. For more info on Exparel, please visit their website here!
