Summary: West Hartford, CT oral surgeons Drs. Joel Rosenlicht and Ryaz Ansari, offer EXPAREL® in an effort to reduce opioid use in their area. EXPAREL is an advanced, opioid-free pain management treatment that avoids complications associated with opioid-based alternatives.

West Hartford, CTDrs. Joel Rosenlicht and Ryaz Ansari, West Hartford, CT oral surgeons, help reduce the use of narcotics by offering surgical patients an opioid-free pain relief alternative. The advanced product, EXPAREL®, helps patients avoid complications commonly associated with opioid-based pain management systems, including long-term dependency.

EXPAREL, a local analgesic, works as a delayed-release pain medication. When injected into the surgical site, EXPAREL interrupts the body’s natural pain signals for several days post-surgery. This allows the patient to experience high levels of comfort without necessitating intake of any or many opioids. According to clinical research, EXPAREL results in 78 percent less opioid intake consumption by patients who undergo surgeries. EXPAREL is the only approved single-dose, opioid-free analgesic product of its kind available today.

Other non-opioid pain relief solutions available at JawFixers include IV sedation and nitrous oxide. Their oral surgeons are trained and authorized to administer the appropriate levels of each type of pain management system to fit the patient’s unique needs and treatment. 

In addition to offering patients leading-edge pain relief, Drs. Rosenlicht and Ansari routinely leverage other types of advanced technologies and solutions to complement their numerous services. Whether performing wisdom teeth extractions or placing dental implants, the team consistently opts to use the most progressive treatments, tools and protocols available to maximize patient comfort, convenience and long-term results.
