Pain meds: Pain meds are indicated for short term relief until you can get to see a dentist. Now is the time to be seen.

Won't help much: You need to see a dentist before the pain becomes unbearable. Painkillers won't stop the pain.

Not a cure. : You are taking a pain killer. Your pain is from a severe infection. Pain killer may partially dull the pain, not cure the cause. You need hands-on dental treatment to remove the infection. You need to immediately see your Dentist. Please make an immediate appointment for a dental examination,
