Why Ibuprofen Helps Following Dental Work

Posted on 2/10/2020 by Dr Jonathan Ford
Why Ibuprofen Helps Following Dental WorkManaging pain after dental surgery can be a real challenge. Sometimes, you may need to use pain relievers. The choice of pain reliever to go for depends on a number of factors such as does the drug has an ability to create an inflammatory response.

One of the best pain relievers to use after a dental procedure is ibuprofen. The painkiller is often used to alleviate pain during and after dental works. Read below some of the ways in which ibuprofen helps after a dental procedure.

Why Ibuprofen Is Helpful After A Dental Procedure

The reason why people feel some amount of pain after a dental procedure is believed to be because of the release of inflammatory mediators which affects the sensory parts surrounding the tooth and that's the reason why most prescribed drugs are anti-inflammatory medications.

Taking Ibuprofen tablets helps in relieving the pain felt after a tooth is removed with minimal or no side effects at all. Other medications such as aspirin may often lead to one having bleeding gums from a chemical burn. The reason why we mostly prefer ibuprofen is because it has very few side effects and even in the event of such, they are not adverse.

For faster and instant results, we may prescribe ibuprofen in combination with other medications. The dosage, to some extent, depends on the amount of pain you are feeling after the numbness is gone. Ibuprofen should only be used when you are feeling pain after a dental procedure. Even then, it should be with a prescription from our clinic. Avoid using over-the-counter medication for your dental problems.

The use of ibuprofen to relieve pain after a dental procedure should only be for a short period of time. If the pain persists, then you should visit our clinic for a further dental examination. Give us a call today if you experience persistent pains.
