In brief: Hydrocodone,tylenol,
For postoperative pain, the most common analgesics are hydrocodone (vicodin, lortab) , tylenol (acetaminophen) #3, or percocet.
In patients who are drug tolerant, hydomorphone (dilaudid) may be used.

In brief: 5mg vicodin
The dentist will most likely give you 5mg vicodin (5mg hydrocodone and 500 mg Acetaminophen (tylenol)) for pain relief.
He or she might also give you an antibiotic to prevent the widespread release of bacteria into the bloodstream. Tramadol and even prescription strength Ibuprofen may be strong enough for others. Have chronic pain, you may need more.
