The misuse and abuse of opioid pain relievers—such as hydrocodone (Vicodin® and Lortab®) and oxycodone (OxyContin® and Percocet®)—has reached epidemic proportions. As prescribers of opioid pain medications, dentists are well positioned to help keep these drugs from becoming a source of harm.
The ADA participates in a number of campaigns and initiatives to raise professional awareness about the prevalence of opioid abuse, and encourage dentists to review the latest techniques for managing dental pain in the context of modern drug-seeking behavior.
