Tooth pain: yes he can but he may want to see a doctor in the AM to deal with this tooth issue
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Meds: Pain Meds will not cure toothache, only block symptoms until the pills wear off. Must see Dentist ASAP for Rx ASAP. If he takes Oxy on top of NSAIDs, should not be driving car.
