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.

Great place. Super nice staff and quick procedures. Everyone I know who got surgery done elsewhere was bedridden for a week but I had almost immediate recovery time. Highly recommend this place

Dr. Loveless and his team were amazing! I was a new patient and called to see if I could get in right away to remove a wisdom tooth. It was an emergency, and they got me in within the hour!! The staff through out my whole experience, from the front desk to the dental assistants, were GREAT!!!! The office was fresh and clean. I highly recommend Dr. Loveless if you’re looking for an oral surgeon.

Dr. Loveless was wonderful, kind, professional, and really made me feel comfortable. He is the kind of man you would want as your regular dentist for not only yourself, but for also your family, neighbors, former roommates twice removed (you get the picture lol). I was completely and utterly scared when I went in and he and the staff helped ease my fears. I didn’t feel anything, he worked quickly, and I left feeling really confident in his work. I hope I never need oral surgery again but if I do, I’m going to [him], hands down. I would absolutely recommend [him] to anyone. 🙂

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!!!

My experience with the ladies and Doctor Loveless was great. I had never been put under by anesthesia before and they made me comfortable and very relaxed. They took care of me from the beginning consultation to leaving minus 4 teeth. Thankfully Dr. Loveless is a younger man so he will hopefully be around to treat my children with the same care, someday.

I went to have my wisdom teeth removed and it was the most pleasant experience. The staff and physician were very friendly and immediately put me at ease. The office was beautiful and exceptionally clean and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone and everyone!
