Only: The only one who will know if the medication you were given is "enough" is the Dentist or Oral Surgeon who removed your tooth. He/she knows your medical and dental histories, we don't. The dose you were given is common but that's not an assurance that it's perfect for you. if you have concerns, see your treating practitioner.
