Opioid guidelines for common dental surgical procedures: a multidisciplinary panel consensus

Opioid guidelines for common dental surgical procedures: a multidisciplinary panel consensus: One in 16 patients prescribed opioids after a surgical procedure will become a long-term
user. The lack of procedure-specific guidelines after common dental procedures contributes
to the opioid overprescribing problem. We convened a multidisciplinary panel to develop
consensus recommendations for opioid prescribing after common dental procedures. We
used a three-step modified Delphi method to develop a consensus recommendation for
outpatient opioid prescribing for 14 common dental procedures. The multi-institution,
multidisciplinary panel represented seven relevant stakeholder groups (oral surgeons,
periodontists, endodontists, general dentists, general surgeons, oral surgery residents,
and oral surgery patients).
