How long does it take for a tooth ache to turn into septic shock?

How long does it take for a tooth ache to turn into septic shock?

Varies: There is no specific time frame for this. It depends on the state of your immune system, what the infecting organism is and what else is going on medically. One thing is certain, however: delay in getting treatment just makes things worse. Get to a dentist ASAP!

Am having surgery in 3 days, can I take penicillin for a tooth ache?

Am having surgery in 3 days, can I take penicillin for a tooth ache?

Toothaches: Toothaches may or may not be a result of an infection. Antibiotics will help manage an infection, but not treat a tooth. Immediately contact your surgeon and dentist to determine how to proceed. Your problem should be managed and/or treated before the surgery. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of the procedure.

What can I do if my tooth has broken off and I have a tooth ache can a dentist take care of this?

What can I do if my tooth has broken off and I have a tooth ache can a dentist take care of this?

Yes: Dentists are the experts in providing the most appropriate care for this situation. Depending on how much tooth remains (both above and below the gumline), the dentist might either perform root canal therapy to save your tooth, or extract it. Either one will resolve your pain.

Better Idea: Get that tooth evaluated ASAP. Long holiday weekend coming up. The severe pain can become unbearable pain in a very short time. The tooth obviously needs attention, and now. All the best...

Can you take cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a tooth ache?

Can you take cipro (ciprofloxacin) for a tooth ache?

Maybe: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is an antibiotic not a pain med. If your tooth ache is being caused by an infection it may help but is not the antibiotic of choice for oral infections. Best thing to do is see a dentist to find the cause.

My sister is brestfeeding her 7 months old baby. A while ago, she was having a tooth ache. Is it safe for her to take apain reliever?

My sister is brestfeeding her 7 months old baby. A while ago, she was having a tooth ache. Is it safe for her to take apain reliever?

Yes - tylenol (acetaminophen): Tylenol (acetaminophen) and advil are safe to take while breastfeeding, however this will only mask the underlying cause of the toothache which could be infection. I recommend visiting a dentist as soon as possible to determine the cause and solution for her toothache. Meanwhile however over the counter pain medicine will relieve her symptoms.

Extreme tooth ache and Excedrin migraine is the only thing that will stop the pain, how often can u really take this med? It said 24 hour help!

Extreme tooth pain: Where does it hurt, for how long, and when? Does it keep you awake at night? Excedrine migraine is like a super aspirin- it can help for short periods of time but too much can make more problems-call your dentist asap.

Will over-the-counter medicine for tooth ache that has benzyl alcohol in it cause false positive on 80 hr test I take?

Will over-the-counter medicine for tooth ache that has benzyl alcohol in it cause false positive on 80 hr test I take?

Toothache: OTC remedies will not cure infected tooth, only mask the symptoms as the infection worsens, spreads, and can farm other tissues. You have a more serious problem than alcohol residue in a blood test. Seek professional care now.

Can I take my hydrocodone for my tooth ache after I have took my one miligram Xanax (alprazolam) four hours earlier I have a tooth that has a cavity

Can I take my hydrocodone for my tooth ache after I have took my one miligram Xanax (alprazolam) four hours earlier I have a tooth that has a cavity

Central: Central nervous system and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. Did your dentist prescibe your pain medication for you? Is your toothache following a dental procedure, or are you self medicating without being treated? Consult with the doctor who wrote this prescription. If your toothache has not been evaluated by a dentist, then I suggest you see a dentist to treat your problem.

My boyfriend has itchy bumps on his hips, thighs and genital area. He takes 2 benadryl, (diphenhydramine) 4 Advil and b&e powder for his tooth ache. Allergic reaction maybe?

My boyfriend has itchy bumps on his hips, thighs and genital area. He takes 2 benadryl, (diphenhydramine) 4 Advil and b&e powder for his tooth ache. Allergic reaction maybe?

Yes, possibly: An allergy to advil (ibuprofen) can cause hives. If hives have another underlying cause then advil (ibuprofen) may exacerbate the underlying hive problem. Other possible causes of hives: 1. Allergies to pollens, mold, dust, food, drugs (like advil (ibuprofen)) and bee stings 2. Infections like hepatitis 3. Autoimmunity 4. Complement deficiency – acquired or hereditary 5. Vaculitis 6. Idiopathic – unknown cause.

What can I take to rid oxycodone from my system so I can pass a urine test. Took one from my friends for a tooth ache.

What can I take to rid oxycodone from my system so I can pass a urine test. Took one from my friends for a tooth ache.

You can't: Your body has its own timetable for eliminating medications, whether prescribed or not. There are no ways to hurry this. Generally oxycodone would be detectable in your urine for 3-4 days. Hoping you see a dentist soon, for your toothache.

Don't wait!: Make sure you get a complete and thorough dental examination as soon as possible. Then make sure that you get whatever dental treatment is necessary to prevent a flare-up or dental emergency while you are away. If that happens, you will not be a happy camper trying to find a competent dentist to treat you. Don't rely on medications alone. When you get back, complete the rest of your treatment.

Several: Acetaminophen. If pain is more severe a narcotic such as oxycodone, or a combination such as Percocet or vicodin, but these are prescriptions. Nsaids such as Ibuprofen can be used, but there is a higher risk of stomach upset, and should be taken with some food.
