You do not have to take any strong pain killers. You may receive a pain killer RX but that does not mean you have to have the Rx filled hun. Just use whatever pain med you normally use, Ibuprofen or Tylenol...........
I have had many teeth extracted and never used anything stronger then Ibuprofen and yes they were removed by an oral surgeon.
You are going to do fine.
Anxiety 2007; IBS 2004; Chronic Hives 2002. Medications: Allegra, Zantac, Xanax, Darvocet.
My thoughts and good vibes are with you. I know you are going to do fine and remember by this afternoon this will all be behind you.
Good luck and stay brave. Think of all the good things in your life.
Wishing you the best,
