Abstract

Recurrent aphthous ulcers are commonly found in the general population. They consist of minor, major, and herpetiform types. A number of factors are considered to be possible etiological factors for recurrent aphthous ulcers; however, their exact etiology remains unclear. Several systemic diseases and conditions associated with oral ulcerations and other causes of oral ulcerations must be considered during the differential diagnosis. Once a definitive diagnosis for recurrent aphthous ulceration has been made, the patient can be given palliative care for the lesions as well as advice and recommendations on nutrition, oral hygiene practices, and other factors that may be associated with his or her recurrent aphthous ulcers.

Abstract

Historically, management of acute odontogenic pain in adolescents and adults has typically been accomplished through an approach that incorporated nonparenteral opioid and/or nonopioid analgesics. However, the availability of opioid analgesics has resulted in epidemic levels of opioid abuse and addiction. Alternative treatment strategies utilizing non-opioids are preferable for management of acute pain, where indicated, including moderate to severe pain. Non-opioids include NSAIDs, acetaminophen, and combination medications, and are more, or as, effective as opioids. This article reviews opioid medications before focusing on non-opioid analgesics, as both monotherapy and combination therapy, for the safe and effective management of acute postprocedural pain in dentistry.

Free Webinar: The Secrets of a Productive Practice

Categories: ,

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists

Duration: 29:43

Synopsis

Dental offices are unique in many ways to the typical business. More often than not, there are fewer than 20 employees, with the majority having fewer than 10. This prompts the need for employee cross-training in all areas to fill vacancies due to vacations, illnesses, or even restroom breaks. Now more than ever, it is important for the business and its employees to be on top of their game.

In this presentation, you will learn how to improve the processes in your dental office to help you manage your practice with confidence and achieve new levels of productivity.
