Yes, Suboxone can potentially help with tooth pain.
Suboxone is a medication that is FDA-approved for opioid use disorder, but it is also used off-label as a pain medication. It has analgesic or pain-relieving properties. Therefore, it can be helpful with tooth pain.
It may also be a good option short-term for someone that has a history of opioid use disorder and is weary of using opioids after a dental procedure. In addition, anti-inflammatory medications have been shown to be equally effective to opioids for tooth pain and are considered much safer.
If you are having tooth pain, anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen might provide adequate pain relief. If you have tooth pain or are anticipating a dental procedure that is not responsive to anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications, Suboxone might be a good option.
Suboxone patients can certainly continue the medication during and after a dental procedure, and may even find that it provides additional pain relief.
Talk to your doctor before any planned dental procedure.
