Brief Answer:
metronidazole, continue combiflam, ketorol, tooth extraction

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.

As far as the pain in the wisdom tooth is concerned, it is because of the infection in the root tip. I would prefer to add metronidazole along with augmentin (if you are not allergic). You can continue combiflam. You can take maximum of 4 tablets in a day.

Till you get the tooth removed pain will be there. I am sure your dentist will prescribe better pain medications such as ketorol DT to help you tolerate pain. Get it treated as early as possible. With combination of the above drugs infection should come down along with pain.

Do saline gargling.

I hope I have answered your query. If any queries are there reply me back. Take care.
