Add acetaminophen: if she doesn't have any allergies to tylenol, then she can add tylenol for additional pain relief. Also icing the sore area 20 minutes at a time will help reduce swelling and pain also. Dolobid is an NSAID so never take another NSAID with it (ibuprofen, aleve etc). Turmeric capsules can also help relieve pain and can be safely added to Dolobid. See dentist if pain worsens (or at least call)
