Pain Management and Healing Recovery-NaturallySep 30, 2020
All dentists want their patients to be comfortable and pain free during and following implant surgical procedures. Pain management and the opioid crisis is in the forefront of peoples mind and dentistry has been included as a contributor to the crisis. In 2016 Kate Snow with CBS news did a story entitled The Deadly Triangle: Dentists, Drugs and Dependence that once again threw dentistry in an unfavorable light. The industry by and large tries to follow guidelines with diligence and responsibility through communication, conscientiousness prescribing methods and responsible usage but the difficulties to navigate patients’ pain is very real.
There may be an option for pain management and healing recovery in the way of products from StellaLife. In 2019 and in 2020 StellaLife VEGA Oral Care Recovery Kit was awarded Dental Advisors Top Oral Healing Product with a 91% clinical rating. StellaLife are all-natural ingredient solutions for pre- and post-surgical treatment that can significantly reduce the need for narcotics and steroids. Their recovery system includes an antimicrobial rinse, sublingual systemic pain reliever spray and topical gel.
The all-natural VEGA Oral Care Recovery kit provides pre-emptive analgesia and a reduction of inflammation, bleeding, and bruising. It is effective against the oral pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) one of the 3 red complex periodontal pathogens that can adhere and invade oral epithelium.
VEGA Oral Care Gel helps to relieve pain associated with oral ulcers, cold sores and even dry sockets. It is hydrating to the tissues and accelerates healing after procedures. VEGA Oral Care Rinse has bacteria fighting properties that promote healthy gums, hydrate the oral cavity while killing over 99% of Strep Mutans and half of anaerobic bacterial load.
