What kind of pills or treatment can somebody get for tooth pain?

See your dentist: any other treatment is a temporary relief. A tooth pain won't go away without treatment and the infection may spread to your jaw, cheeks, sinus and to other areas of your head and neck. See your dentist ASAP. ...Read more

Why i still have a  tooth pain after a medicated dressing  treatment in the socket?

Dry socket: It is common to have pain after an extraction. It sounds as if you had a dry socket and the dentist placed some dry socket paste. This dressing may need to be replaced again a couple of times for the dry socket to resolve. I would go see the dentist and have him clean the area and place more paste. The extraction site should start feeling better a little bit every day. If not, something is wrong. ...Read more

Are there any side effects from biodentine as i still have tooth pain 10 days after treatment?

The tooth: Probably has a very deep filling with pulpal approximation or slight pulpal exposure which is why biodentine was used. If the pain is still present and the occlusion is normal, then the tooth probably need to be treated endodontically (root canal). ...Read more

Why i still have a tooth pain after dry socket treatment( medicated dressing )?

Likely infection: The topical pain killers in dry socket dressings are designed to provide quick acting and sometimes short term relief while the underlying infection starts to resolve. Since that infection can take up to a week to resolve, it is common for pain to recur and require replacement of the dry socket dressing a few times while managing the condition. Systemic painkillers like Ibuprofen are very helpful. ...Read more

Diagnosis needed: You need to determine the cause of your grinding problem that leads to pain. Your dentist can make you a mouth guard to protect your tissues and reduce the level of pain while the cause of your grinding (malocclusion, skeletal imbalance, muscular imbalance, stress, parafunctional habits, reaction to medication, etc) is determined. No, you can't fix this with an otc. ...Read more
