You need to just call your dentist and ask what to do. I have seen dentists give ibuprofen for this but I wouldnt just take it without a recommendation from your dentist. I had all four wisdom teeth extracted at the same time and it hurts!! Perhaps if you call and tell them you are in pain, they will call some pain pills in for you.
Hi, i would take Paracetamol, maybe Co-codamol, and use (adult) Bonjela or Anbesol AROUND the area where the teeth were extracted - not directly on the area where the roots were! And use a good (sensitive) mouthwash twice daily.
Paracetamol + Codeine. Stay away from Ibuprofen.
No don't take an NSAID as it increases bleeding and these bleed for a while. Don't mess with the blood clot that forms or you end up with dry socket. That really hurts and you have to go back.
Use Tylenol. It only hurts a day or so. Rinse mouth with saltwater. Be very careful brushing so you don't disturb the clot. I would just skip it the first day or so. If the area starts bleeding bite on folded gauze to create pressure. In the morning call the dentist and get better instruction. They should have given you a handout.
Ibuprophen would be best if you can tolerate it. It will help with the swelling since it is an anti-inflammatory. I hope you feel better tomorrow.
