Brief Summary:
Patients will receive a single intravenous (IV) infusion administered over 3 minutes of either ORG 28611 (SCH 900111), 0.12 mg/kg morphine sulphate, or placebo, within 6 hours after dental surgery, when they experience moderate to severe dental pain. Patient will then be evaluated with pain assessments at Baseline, 5, 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90 minutes; and 2 through 8 hours or before rescue medication is needed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total Pain Relief Score (TOTPAR) [ Time Frame: from 0 to 4 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pain Intensity (PI) on a visual analog scale (VAS), PI difference in VAS from Baseline, PI difference on a categorical scale, PI difference on categorical scale from Baseline, Pain Relief (PR) on a categorical scale, PR Intensity Difference (PRID). [ Time Frame: at Baseline, 5, 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90 minutes; and 2 through 8 hours or before rescue medication ]
  2. Time to rescue medication, time to perceptual and meaningful pain relief (stopwatch), time to onset of analgesia, Peak Pain Intensity Difference (PPID), Peak Pain Relief (PPR). [ Time Frame: After surgery ]
  3. Global evaluation of trial medication on a 5-point categorical scale at 8 hours or just prior to rescue medication [ Time Frame: at 8 hours or just prior to rescue medication ]
  4. TOTPAR [ Time Frame: over 2, 6, and 8-hour intervals ]
  5. Summed pain intensity difference (SPID) calculated using PID categorical scale and PID VAS scale, Summed pain relief intensity difference (SPRID), [ Time Frame: Over 2, 4, 6, and 8-hour intervals ]
