Prescription opioid drugs are the most common drug class associated with drug overdose in Oklahoma. More than all other illicit drugs combined. Due to their high addiction rate, prescription opioids can lead to an unintentional addiction habit for patients or serve as a gateway to illegal drug use and abuse. Up to 23% of prescription opioids are used non-medically and dentists account for 12% of prescribed opioids in the United States. How dentists respond to the crisis is paramount. This course will review alternative options for managing acute dental pain. It will explore the trends in opioid drug use and abuse and discuss resources for patients struggling with addiction.
