Pain Management – Medication
Medications may be prescribed for your recovery from a dental procedure. In many cases, these medications are needed to control discomfort and pain, and to ward off a possible infection.
While some drugs are formulated to fight certain oral diseases, others are used to prevent infections after surgical procedures such as tooth extractions and gum surgery. Certain drugs are used prior to dental treatment. These pre-medications are used to help fight infections and also are used to control existing conditions such as heart murmurs and valve problems.
