I went to the dentist and they took ex rays, my teeth are em packed. But they said there is nothing they can do until the swelling goes down. So I went to the ER and they prescribed penicillin, so now I have to deal with this horrible pain until the swelling goes away.
Is this normal procedure? I'm in so much pain, I can barely open my jaw, and I can't eat anything. Should I go to another dentist or deal with the pain until the swelling goes away?
I called a different dentist and he said that he wouldn't be able to do anything until the swelling goes down. Just like the first one. I'm in SO MUCH PAIN I feel like taking the tooth out myself! I can't take take anything but Tylenol, (NSAIDs & pain meds make me sick). Does anyone have any home treatments for pain management? Anything at all, my jaw hurts so bad!
