Is TYLENOL® right for your dental pain?

After dental surgery, it is common for a dentist to give patients a prescription (Rx) for tooth pain relief. Some of these medicines, such as Vicodin® or Percocet®, may contain acetaminophen. Did you know that acetaminophen is also found in many OTC pain relievers, such as TYLENOL®? TYLENOL® is gentle on the stomach and provides temporary pain relief. Talk to your dentist about whether TYLENOL® may be more appropriate for your dental pain instead of rX options.

When taking TYLENOL® it is important to remember:

  • Do not exceed the dose on the label directions. Always read and follow the label.
  • Check every Rx and OTC label, and take ONLY 1 medicine containing acetaminophen at a time.

Other tips to consider when you have a toothache in addition to taking TYLENOL®
