  • Medicines may give you temporary relief but it is not the permanent treatment. For that you have to get the proper diagnosis .Treatment depends upon the diagnosis. You have to visit the dentist who will do the clinical examination nd take tha X-ray to find out the cause of the pain. if it is tooth infection then if tooth can be saved you have to go for the root canal treatment followed by crown but if the tooth can not be saved then you may have to get it pulled out. If the pain is because of the gum infection then the gum treatment has to be done.  For more info on dental pain and what medicines can be taken you can visit the following link on our website....
