Exparel ( https://www.exparel.com/patient/index ) is a long-acting local anesthetic medication that is commonly used in oral and maxillofacial surgery for post-operative pain management. It contains the active ingredient bupivacaine, which is slowly released over time to provide pain relief for up to 72 hours after surgery.

Exparel is administered as an injection during surgery, and its slow-release mechanism helps to manage pain in the first few days after surgery, when pain is typically the most severe. It can be used for a variety of oral and maxillofacial procedures, including wisdom teeth removal, jaw surgery, and dental implant placement.

One of the benefits of Exparel is that it can reduce or eliminate the need for opioid pain medications, which can be addictive and have significant side effects. By providing long-lasting pain relief, Exparel can help patients avoid the use of opioid pain medications and promote a faster recovery.

At our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, we believe in using the latest and most advanced technologies and medications to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. We are proud to offer Exparel as a safe and effective option for post-operative pain management, and we work closely with our patients to develop personalized treatment plans that meet their unique needs and goals. If you need oral or maxillofacial surgery, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our team to learn more about how Exparel can benefit you.
