Which pain medication is more affective in relieving pain following a back lower molar tooth extraction with bone graft and stitches?

Depends.

Bones
People have different responses to pain medications and that's probably why there are so many on the market. Usually a combination of an NSAID along with a narcotic for breakthrough pain.

Dr. Vanna Master answered:

Does molar tooth extraction require surgery?

Not always

Root_canal
Molar tooth extraction can be simple with no surgery involved in many cases. Sometimes if a tooth is badly broken, or has had a root canal treatment in past that tooth may not come out easily and will need surgery. Also most unerupted and impacted third molars will need surgery to extract.

How long does it take for recovery from a molar tooth extraction?

Six weeks

Dental
removing a tooth, especially a molar is a big deal. It leaves a surface wound the size of half a dollar bill, that can become infected if food is present, followed by bacteria. Often it is already infected prior to extraction that can lead to a systemic bacteremia. This is been blamed for plaque deposits in arteries. follow all instructions, keep hygiene good, liquid diet for five days.

How soon after a lower molar tooth extraction with bone graft and stitches can I chew solid food?

It depends

Bones
If it is only one side, I tell patients they can chew solid food on the unaffected side the next day. Follow your doctors instructions

Dr. Jeffrey Jarvis answered:

How long does it take to recover from a bottom molar tooth extraction with a bone graft and stitches?

Define recover

Tooth_decay
Depends on your definition of recover....if you mean "When can I go back to work?", the answer is the next day--you will be sore, but quite functional. If you mean "When will all pain be gone?", about 2 weeks +/-. "When will it feel like normal again?" After the implant crown is placed!

How long does it take for the periodontist to complete a molar tooth extraction with a bone graft and stitches?

Not long

Most appointments last about an hour including sedation, anesthesia, the procedure, and dismissal. Many like to say how fast they can do things, but anyone can do fast. Quality and the protection, and preservation of the remaining tissue is most important. You will have to live with the results, so make sure to find someone focused on quality, and who will take their time!

I was wondering is it okay to ride my bicycle for 40 kilometers 5 days after a single upper molar tooth extraction?

Yes

Molar_tooth
If you are healing uneventfully and if you are healthy, then by the third day after extraction you should be living life normally.

Dr. James Hargan answered:

How any days after a molar tooth extraction with a bone graft and stitches do I have to wait before I can use a straw?

About 24 hours

Bones
Need to ask the person who did the procedure, as they would have more insight as to nature of and difficulty of your specific situation. But in general, no straws for 24 hours is ok

I had a left molar tooth extraction 3 days ago and now my tooth right next to it is very sensitive to touch with a toothbrush. Is this normal?

No, but common

Molar_tooth
While sensitivity is not normal, it is a common occurrence. It may be related to the adjacent tooth temporarily having no gum covering the root surface. As the extraction site heals, the sensitivity usually subsides. It may also be related to local inflammation. If it does not get better, have your dentist take a look to make sure no other treatment is necessary.
