Call dentist: First call your dentist, tell them the pain is increasing, and see if they can see you sooner. Then try 1 200 mg advil every 4 hrs. If you need more help, try 1 200 mg advil + 1 350 mg tylenol (acetaminophen) every 4 hours. Do not take more frequently than recommended. If that doesn't work, and your dentist can't see you, perhaps they can refer you to an endodontist. ...Read more

Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?

Not necessarily: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, Elevated CRP in someone with infection is an expected finding. You may wish to repeat the test about 6 weeks after you have recovered from the infection. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.
