Discomfort after routine endodontic treatment is usually minimal and may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed. Occasionally, prescription pain medicine and/or antibiotics may be necessary and you should receive prescriptions for these during your visit to our office. NOTE: Alcohol intake is not advised while taking any of these medications. If you experience post-treatment symptoms that are not alleviated by your medications, please contact this office immediately. There is always a doctor on call. If you need to call after hours, please have your pharmacy number available.
