Facts and figures behind the opioid epidemic: 3 clinical methods to alleviate pain and decrease the need for opiates

Recently, the president and his cabinet staff declared a national public health emergency and dedicated federal funds to combat “the worst opioid crisis in the history of the United States.” In addition, the Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis (CCDAOC) was established, with goals to regulate and monitor the dispense of opioids among health-care providers. These actions are the result of an epidemic of opioid addiction that has increased exponentially in the past few years.

The CCDAOC recently sent a white paper to the president outlining actionable propositions that could combat the opioid epidemic, and three additional propositions will directly affect medical and dental health-care providers. Considering the call for specific clinical practice that can decrease the need for opiates, we in the dental profession can implement these three techniques to reduce the need for prescription pain medication for postsurgical procedures.
