6-day Post Dental Surgical Protocol for Pain Management

Share

Submitted by The Dental Health Consultant

Tylenol

— Take three times a day 6 hours apart to raise the pain threshold


Ibuprofen

— Take 800 mg twice a day and 12 hours apart to reduce inflammation


Caveat

Don’t take any opioid medication during this 6-day period as it crudely blocks the normal pain signal.  This quick fix can lead to opioid addiction because of its miraculous but misleading result.
