Posted on Fri, 19 May 2017
Question: I have toothache and visited doctor. Doctor advised me to remove two tooth which require small surgery. However, because of busy schedule and other priorities, i cant go for surgery for another 10 days. I am scheduling it on 13th May. In the meantime, can you prescribe me some painkiller which can give me temporary relief when i am having toothache.

You can take NSAID's and a short script of antibiotics too.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for the query..

If you have a toothache then it is most probably due to infection in tooth.
So, for this you can take NSAID's like Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Ketorolac etc.
To reduce infection you can also take a short course of antibiotics like Amoxicillin after consulting your Dentist..
It will help in reducing both infection and pain..
You can also apply clove oil over your tooth.

Please write back for more queries..
