I had two extraction done and a root canal my dentist gave me no pain medicines went home novacaine wore off I was in horrible pain my sister call the doc to hive you something he was rude told me to go the drug store to get pain medicines. I had to call my doctor family doctor to prescribe pain medicines and she did I have a high tolerance for pain she knows that simple Tylenol isn't going to help. She told me don't go back to him was I wrong to ask for pain medicines from my dentist. I was told some dentist refuse to give pain medicines.
It is fairly standard to be prescribed some pain relief if you ask while in the office but in my experience they rarely offer anything.
I haven't had any major dental work recently, but I was always given pain meds when I had a root canal or other dental work. They usually gave me vicoprofen, about 6 to 10 pills.
It's a good thing your primary gave you something, when the mouth hurts its usually pretty bad.
I have been on both sides. Most will give you something for the pain, but then you have those who are against narcotics or scared to prescribe anymore.
Next time ask ahead of time what their pain management is after a painful procedure so you know.
Tooth pain is no fun and hopefully you will not need anymore painful visits!!
