Discussions that mention vicodin

Dental Health board

Its hard to say - everyone's experience, reaction and pain tolerance to these types of procedures are different - but the first 2-3 days are usually the hardest - usually due to throbbing and swelling. Make sure the dentist gives you something like prescription strength Motrin or Vicodin for several days - they will help you be able to still manage doing daily responsibilites, etc. I have had some grafts that hurt for a full week and others that never even hurt afterwards - so I think it depends on the amount of graft being used and the extent of the area.
