OSOMS Thoughts on Pain Relievers
Our members perform many procedures on a daily basis which can require the use of pain relievers. Each Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon carefully weighs the risks and benefits of the pain relievers prescribed for the condition he or she is managing. Appropriate pain management is essential to recovery from treatment. If an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon decides that opioid pain relievers are needed, the type and number of this type of medication is selected in a conscientious manner to protect the public and serve the patient.
