If the tooth is still painful, that mean there is still inflammation there.
The best thing to do will be to start anti inflammatory medication along with the antibiotics resolution.
I would suggest that you start on Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day from today.
OK, so I should call my dentist and suggest postponement and this approach?
I do take Omeprazole reflux so usually avoid Ibuprofen?
Well, yes, you can discuss this with her, or may be she can use an alternative approach , do the procedure under anesthesia or a stronger nerve block.
Okay, then the simplest will be to start on Tylenol two tablets every 6 hours.
Because everything else that is gastroprotective is also prescription only.
Do you have more queries?
Only to ask if there exists a nerve block that will guarantee no pain?
If the dentist injects directly in to the inflamed pulp and does a pulpectomy there after that will be the most effective.
But injection in the pulp is itself painful 2 to 3 seconds.
Any nerve block around it will not be very effective because of the inflammation.
