  • No. For minor procedures like tooth removal you may not be require opioid pain control. You can continue suboxone until the day of surgery. Have your dentist or surgeon call us and discuss with our medical providers before prescribing any opiate medication. While your pain control is important, we worry about re introduction of opioids.
