Abstract
Pharmacotherapy forms an integral part of acute dental pain management. In a majority of cases, safe and effective management of acute dental pain can be accomplished with a non-opioid medication regimen. Nonetheless, in certain circumstances use of opioid medications may be needed. Furthermore, there are various pain management regimens, such as pre-emptive analgesia, post-procedural cold compression, use of long acting anesthetic, and compound drug therapy that can improve the efficacy of analgesics to achieve a desired therapeutic response without compromising patient safety.
