He's 8 years old
Yes, he saw a dentist 2 days ago. Had xrays. Previous filling intact in tooth causing problem. He was very preterm 29weeks and been told teeth didn't form well to expect problems. His dentist is in UK. They recommended possibly pulpectomy or root canal or extraction.
His toothache has subsided significantly since he started the antibiotics- Augmentin and Metronidazole with paracetamol.
Thanks for your advice.

Since he has been seen by a dentist, and he is under treatment, you will not have any problems during the travel.

He can safely make the journey.

Be sure to have painkillers like Motrin suspension in case he has any pain.

Make sure not to miss any antibiotic dose.

He should have a safe and trouble free journey.

Please dont worry about the call request, it is generated automatically by the website, not by me. You have to give a positive rating at the bar of stars once the session is complete

Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 7 days ago.

Glad to be of help.

Please choose a positive rating with 5 stars from the rating bar of stars at the corner of your chat box if my answer has helped you (or click on 'rate and close'). We are paid only when a positive rating is given. I expect this from you if I have been able to help you.

Without a positive rating, this session remains inconclusive and the question will show up as an 'unaccepted request' against your ID.

Thank you.
