Exparel®

For Extended Pain Control Post-Surgery

Exparel®


Our team is concerned about the growing opioid crisis in our country, and in response, we are very proud to offer Exparel to our patients. Exparel is an opioid-free option for long-lasting and effective pain relief post-surgery, and it is on its way to becoming a favored pain control medication by both oral surgeons and patients. Clinically proven, this medication is easily tolerated and has an excellent safety profile.

As you know, Archway Oral Surgery and Dental Implants is dedicated to offering our patients across the St Louis and Southern Illinois region the very best care with the least amount of risk, and our use of Exparel reflects this promise. For a comfortable, safe recovery from oral surgery without the risk of opioid dependence, we trust Exparel to get the job done.

How does Exparel work?

Receiving Exparel is easier than keeping track of pain control medications commonly prescribed post-surgery. In fact, you won’t have to take any pills at all — your oral surgeon will administer Exparel to your surgical site while you are still in surgery in one powerful dose. This dose will take effect immediately, slowly releasing into your area of surgery, relieving pain for several days into your recovery.

Benefits of Exparel include:

  • A single dose of medication controls pain for several days into recovery.
  • Safe, non-addictive, and non-narcotic, Exparel is proven to be well tolerated and has none of the risks or side effects associated with opioid-based prescriptions.
  • Prescription pain medications can often be postponed or completely avoided post-surgery.

At Archway Oral Surgery and Dental Implants, comfort, safety, and satisfaction are our priorities — and we strive to provide attentive and high-quality surgical care for our patients before, during, and after their treatments. You are an important part of your care team, and by choosing to add Exparel to your treatment plan, you are helping to ensure that you have a comfortable recovery and are safe from the risks and side effects of opioid medications.

Dr. Loveless is amazing. I will continue to use and refer people to him.

I had a great experience at Archway. I went there to get four wisdom teeth removed. The office was clean. The staff was nice and efficient. Dr. Loveless was warm and the Spotify music was a nice touch. The procedure went through with no problems and I didn’t feel a thing. I received a post op call and great instructions. Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations after you hear all the horror stories regarding wisdom teeth removal.

We were headed to Florida when my son came down with an abscessed tooth. Dr. Loveless was able to get us in and remove his tooth before our flight. I can’t thank Laurie enough for making what could be a scary experience for my 7 year old, a fun, pleasant one. I can’t express how thankful I am for her treating him like her own and making sure he was comfortable. She went above and beyond in my eyes and made this nervous mom rest a little easier. Thank you both!!!

Very friendly staff. Doctor spent time to explain and answer questions. Easy to make an appointment. Easy to get a recheck. Staff and Doctor made themselves readily available for questions after surgery even during holidays.

I went to get my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago & i could not wait to leave a review. My experience was absolutely PHENOMENAL. I wish i could give them more stars. Everyone at the facility was nice, accommodating and very professional. The procedure was done very quickly and they even gave me Ted Drew’s afterwards! My recovery has been unbelievably easy & fast. I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and there was very little swelling. I’ve barely had to take any pain medication and i was even able to eat the next day! I’m convinced they are magicians because the entire experience was just so great it seemed unreal! I never leave reviews but I just had to after receiving such amazing treatment. They definitely live up to the reviews!

I was really nervous before going into my surgery and the team was very friendly and made me feel at ease. I will definitely recommend friends and family to Dr Loveless. He has a great bedside manner and, is very professional. I know ive found an awesome oral surgeon.

What can I say? No one likes to visit the dentist…especially for anything other than having their teeth cleaned. I am no different. Hated that I had to have a tooth taken out but it was necessary. I was referred here by my dentist to see Dr. Loveless. If I ever have to have anything else done from an oral surgeon, I would never wish to see anyone else. Dr. Loveless and his staff not only made me feel less anxious but they were super nice and made sure that I knew everything that was being done. I would refer them to anyone with complete confidence! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I want to tell them all thank you for making this process much easier on me. Just an amazing staff and surgeon!!
