Wisdom Tooth Study

Research Question:
Is a combination of non-opioid pain medications just as (or more) effective than opioid-containing pain medications?

Basic Study Information

If you take part in the research, you will be asked to complete several questionnaires, to take a pain medication that's provided, and you will be asked to wear an activity monitor for 72 hours. It will take about 15 minutes during your surgery visit and post-operative visit to complete questionnaires. During the post-operative period you will receive electronic messages (via text or email) in the morning and evening. The messages will ask you to complete an eDiary on your smartphone to record pain levels, which will take about 2-3 minutes for each entry. Participants must be age 18+, have at least one wisdom tooth impacted in the lower jaw, and be in generally good health and able to take ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), acetaminophen (Tylenol), and hydrocodone.
