I would think so. I am not sure really, perhaps you should give them a call, and ask them, they will be able to tell you if they do or not... If they say they don't, you could pick up some extra strength Tylenol or something for the pain. Maybe even something that is for toothaches that will numb the area.

It depends. If it is likely to cause significant pain for several days, the dentist might prescribe Vicodin (hydrocodone).

ANSWER #3 of 9

It really, really doesn't hurt as badly as you'd think. The needle for the novocain isn't great, but once that's over, it just feels gross rather than hurts. And later, while it bleeds a little, it doesn't hurt at all. Just be careful with the kinds of food you give him, two days after the removal, he'll be fine for most things, depending on which tooth was removed.

Home remedy for tooth pain?
ANSWER #6 of 9

Going and pulling out part of a tooth seems to lend itself to a greater chance for pain - as the dentist might have to use more sharp utensils to get the tooth fragments out, versus being able to do a more straight-forward seeming tooth pull.

Even Tylenol 3 or something else would probably do the trick for most guys after a tooth pulling. Also, if you can drive him, it might be a good idea if they can give him a sedative in advance.
