Ask your dentist!: It is common to take these two medications either together , or alternating them, for oral pain. There are several studies that suggest the combination of tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil is more effective than prescription medications. Be careful on the dose and don't take too much in a 24 hour period. The best idea is to get to your dentist asap to get the problem corrected!
