Best Practices for Management of Pain, Swelling, Nausea, and Vomiting in Dentoalveolar Surgery
Oral Maxillofac Surg Clin North Am
Pain, swelling, nausea, and vomiting associated with outpatient oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures are common occurrences in daily practice. The need to minimize these often unavoidable consequences of surgical intervention is of utmost importance in delivering a good experience for our patient population, thus improving outcomes of our surgery as well as anesthesia. A review of current therapies available to manage these experiences is presented to enable the practitioner to develop multimodal protocols and custom tailor treatment based on procedure and patient risk factors for these unfortunate consequences of surgery.
