After Sinus Lift Graft
You should begin taking pain medication as soon as you feel the local anesthetic wearing off. For moderate pain, Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) may be taken. Ibuprofen, bought over the counter comes in 200 mg tablets: 2-3 tablets may be taken every 3-4 hours as needed for pain. For severe pain, the prescribed medication should be taken as directed. Do NOT take Tylenol if you are taking a prescription pain medicine from our office. Many prescription pain medicines already contain Tylenol and you can easily take too much. You may take Ibuprofen at the same time as most prescription pain medicines we provide in our office. Do not take any of the above medications if you are allergic, or have been instructed by your doctor not to take it.
