Talk with dentist: I would suggest talking with your dentist about pain meds. Without knowing your health it might not be good to recommend a specific medication. Best of luck.

See a dentist: See a dentist. If the painkiller and antibiotics are not easing the pain, the dentist may need to do an incision/drainage procedure on the abscess.
