Re: Dentists

Ibuprofen ramp-up: (This assumes that you have previous experience with taking it and know that it is your friend.)

Take 2 of the 200mg pills (tablets/caplets/capsules/gelcaps/whatsoever) when you get out of the chair, even though the anesthetic is keeping the pain at bay.

Two hours later, take 2 more pills.

Two hours later, take two more. By now, the anesthesia should have left your face unfuzzy, but the pain is only up to a dull roar.

When the pain starts sharpening, take 2 more.

Here's the story that goes with that:
My ex-boss is a periodontist. His wife is an orthodontist. Therefore, when she had her wisdom teeth extracted, she Should Have Known Better. However, the anesthesia was doing such a good job that she ignored his advice and went straight to sleep. She woke up in agony, of course.
