“What painkiller is best after tooth extraction?”
I will have a tooth extraction. What painkiller is best after tooth extraction?
Dr. Dennis Nagata Dentist Honolulu, HI
Ibuprofen and Tylenol
Dr. Heather M. Hendricks Dentist KANSAS CITY, MO
It is best to alternate between the recommended doses of Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. This combination has been found to be as, if not more, effective in pain relief than opioids.
