EXPAREL is an opioid-free pain medication that lasts for 72 hours and can be used to provide relief following wisdom tooth extractions, dental implant surgery, and other procedures. Dr. Nicole Eisenberg believes that a focus on patient comfort improves the entire surgical experience, from feeling confident before a procedure to managing pain during recovery.
How EXPAREL Works
Upon injection, the medication spreads through soft tissues, minimizing pain with natural lipids and a time-release technique for targeted and lasting pain relief.
The expected duration of discomfort and swelling after implant placement, tooth extraction, or wisdom teeth extractions is approximately two to three days in most cases. Because EXPAREL continues to relieve pain for 72 hours following surgery, it may be the only analgesic you need during recover.
Reducing the Need for Opioids
Studies have shown that EXPAREL can eliminate or reduce the need for opioid-based drugs among patients.
We Are Committed to Your Health and Safety
In our state, opioids claimed over 1100 lives in 2016. Each day in Tennessee, at least three people die from an opioid-related overdose, which is more than the number of daily traffic fatalities. Tennessee remains in the top 15 of all states in drug overdose deaths, and each year, more opioid prescriptions are written than there are people living in Tennessee, with more than 1 million prescriptions left over. This epidemic does not discriminate and knows no boundaries. It devastates families from all walks of life and harms communities across Tennessee. Together, we can and must do better.
