I had an abscessed tooth removed on the 3rd. I'm still in extreme about of pain that i was in the day I got my tooth removed 4 days later. He did not give me any pain medication and I'm using my prescription ibuprofen that I have in my house 800mg every 8 hours and it barely removes the edge of the pain. Should I go to the er or try to wait it out and go back to the dentist as soon as they can see me?Answer Question

Ask him to prescribe Codeine or Vicodin. That's what I was prescribed when I had mine taken out. He should've also prescribed the prescription strength antimicrobial mouth rinse called Chlorhexidine and given you a rinsing apparatus that looks like an angled medicine dropper to squirt water into the tooth socket and help rinse it with lukewarm water. Try using some Anbesol on the surrounding gum area but not inside any sockets. Your dentist sounds really bad. He can call or fax the prescription in directly to the pharmacy if you ask him to.
