Hi,
Thank you for the query.
Percocet is a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone, where oxycodone is an opiate analgesics a derivative of narcotic group . Usually this drug is not advised in alcohol addictions , low blood pressure, mental illness. Long term usuage of percocet is not advised . So see your dentist to rule out the cause for the tooth ache and get an x- ray done for the best treatment plan .
Depending on the extent of infection the teeth can be rootcanal treated
Hope this information helps you.
