What should you do for a toothache and tylenol (acetaminophen) doesn't work?

Phone call...: .. To your dentist. A toothache is usually caused by a condition that needs to be treated by a dentist. Otc pain meds only mask the pain for a short while, giving you time to get in to be treated. If tylenol (acetaminophen) is not working, your problem is getting serious. Please call.
