Expert Oral Surgery Services for Individuals in the Lutz, FL, Area
Tampa Surgical Arts is an oral surgery clinic serving the Lutz, Florida, community, and we stand out in many ways. First, we are led by an oral surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, who is board certified by the American Board of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, and the American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery. Second, our patients can expect prompt appointments and minimal wait times. And third, we can offer an opioid-free oral surgery experience.
Non-Opioid Oral Surgery
We are one of the few oral surgery clinics in the area that can administer ketamine, propofol, or another non-opioid sedation medication. And, to help with postsurgical pain, we can administer EXPAREL®, which is a long-acting local anesthetic that is administered during the procedure while the patient is still under sedation. This ensures pain is at a manageable level when the patient wakes up from surgery, reducing the need for narcotic medication. This anesthetic will release into the soft tissue of the surgical site for 72 hours, so patients may only need over-the-counter medication to control their pain in the days following their procedure.
The ability to offer non-opioid options for oral surgery is particularly beneficial for younger patients. Typically, these patients’ first introduction to opioid medication is from procedures such as wisdom teeth removal. Parents are typically relieved to learn that we can offer an opioid-free experience for their children.
