Non-Opioid Exparel for Long Lasting Pain Control

The Tampa Bay Institute of Oral Surgery and Dental Implants offers Exparel (bupivacaine), a safe and effective local anesthetic that blocks nerve impulses at the site of injection for three days.

“We are proud to be among the first oral surgeons in Florida to use Exparel,” says Dr. Renato Aves. “Every one of our four office locations in Tampa, Lakeland, and Winter Park is a premier center for oral surgery and dental implants. This is just one of the ways we provide our patients with the safest, most comfortable experience. With Exparel, we’re eliminating the need to prescribe opioid analgesics for the first three days post-surgery. Patients appreciate the ease with which pain is continuously controlled during this period of most significant gum tissue inflammation. After three days, an over-the-counter pain killer is usually all that is needed to manage any discomfort.”
