Responsible opioid prescribing practices and risks of opioid abuse will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:
Summarize the evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of NSAIDs vs. opioids in pain management following third molar extraction. Describe patient populations in which opioids would be preferred for treating post-surgical dental pain. Discuss some opioid-sparing strategies for pain management.
