You can also take tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg x2 alternating every 4-6 hours. Please consult with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.

I had a wisdom tooth out yesterday i woke up today my face is swollen and bruised and one of the stitches fell out is that okay?
It should be ok.: Swelling and bruising, especially the day after your extractions, can be the normal after effect of difficult wisdom teeth extractions. Follow your post op prescriptions by applying ice to reduce swelling. Also take aleve (naproxen) etc. And any rx'd antibiotics to keep your mouth's bacteria count as low as possible to prevent dry sockets. Daily flossing is a must...

I believe my 1yo has her first molar coming in. She also has a small bruise spot on her cheek about the same location. Could a tooth cause a bruise?
Yes: If it is truly on her cheek then it is likely trauma from biting or something else. If it is on the gums right next to the molar or on top of it it could be an eruption cyst. Goes away on its own most cases. Watch it and if concerned see your dentist for consult. Children should see their dentist by age 1 for first check up. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
