I took a daytime cold/flu medicine with 650mg acetaminophen 5-6 hours ago. I have a terrible tooth pain that wont go away. Is it safe to take a vicodin now?

How long can I wait with tooth pain to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

How long can I wait with tooth pain to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

Not long: Teeth hurt from debris in between teeth (floss this out, rinse with mouthwash and brush), or decay into the dentum (not an emergency but see your dentist), or infection in the root (terribly painful , responds to ice on the tooth, may need a root canal). These should be seen by your dentist. How long to wait depends upon your pain tolerance and how much damage you will ignore. ...Read more

Can you have tooth infection even if no tooth pain is present? I feel pain at times but then it goes away and won't come back for a while

Possibly: It is possible for a tooth to be infected and now cause pain, if the infection is draining then pressure will not build up. It is best to see a dentist to have it checked before you end up with a major life threatening abscess. ...Read more
