Yes: There is truly a lot of variables in this question - i.e. How much does the child use a pacy of suck their thumb per day, but for the most part these habits are devastating to teeth. Not only do I see this every day in my office, but I have a child who sucks her thumb and see the devastation to her teeth every day.

Take one day: Depends upon what is your occupation and the amount of pain or discomfort you can tolerate if you don't have complications like bleeding or infection and whether or not you required general anesthesia or only local. You may require to take strong analgesics with drowsiness and be incapacitated to think clearly. I would at least take one day post op.

A member asked:

I took 5 aleves (naproxen) and I am having severe nausea. Is this normal?

TOO MANY: 5 Aleve (naproxen) at the same time? That is too much. The package says take 1 pill up to 2 times a day. Never take more than the label says unless your doctor says it is ok. 5 alave can make you feel nausea. This is why they print how many to take safely on the labels.
