Toothache/headache

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Itbeadam  (7 years ago)
Hello,
For the past three days, I have been up, without sleep, having a terrible pain on my lower right molar. It has been bad for a long time, but just recently started causing me serious pain; tried vicodin to ease the pain, but didnt help AT ALL. The tooth is almost completely gone and the gums around it are swollen. It has cause me to have killer headaches... Gets to the point where im holding my head in pain. I haven't had time to schedule an appointment due to work and was wondering if there were any alternative ways to help the pain a little and maybe take the swelling down a bit until I'm able to schedule something.

Nope. No way to reduce pain except dental treatment. If an x-ray shows the tooth can be saved via a root canal, I highly encourage you to save it.
