Suggest treatment for tooth pain

Had extreme tooth pain and was taking a lot of ibuprofen. Was under a lot of stress as I was traveling out of country when it happened. A significant amount of red blood was in my urine one time and then it was clear the next time urinating and has not happened again. Should I see a doctor.

Thanks for consulting HCM,

Read your query as you have toothache this pain in tooth can be due to carious tooth , decayed tooth , gingival problem like gingival enlargement or due to periodontal problem like periodontal pocket .
Dont be worried so much treatment for toothache is go for examination of tooth by oral surgeon and IOPA x ray of tooth if it is carious go for reatoration if it is due to gingival or periodontal problem go for it oral prophylaxis , in meanwhile you can take dispersible tablet for pain like Paracetamol or Ketrol dt for temporary relief , do warm saline rinses.

Hope this will help you.

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The pain could be because of the gum infection or tooth infection.
Consult a oral physician and get a radiograph done to rule out the tooth infection.
you can take a course of antibiotics and analgesics like amoxicillin 500mg and metronidazole 400mg tid for 5 days (if you are not allergic).
Do saline gargling.
If there is tooth infection, then get the tooth restored with RCT or extraction. If there is gum infection then get the teeth cleaned once.
i hope my answer will help you, take care.
