You can definitely try the cold pack to see if it'll help with some of the pain. If its vicodin 5/500, you can take it every 4 hours but only one tablet, not two.
Thank you, I called 3 times lastnight to the emergency line they have at my dentist but no one called me back.
The pain is in my tooth not around the gum, what could that mean? that she didn't kill all the nerves?
i've been taking the vicodin (generic) every 4 hours. Should I put a cold pack on my face to help also with the pain or will that make it worse ?
I would recommend calling your dentist again and going in to see her as soon as possible. I would continue taking the vicodin every 4 hours (only 1 pill at a time if its regular vicodin 5/500 concentration) for the meantime. You may also want to take some ibuprofen too as its safe to take it with the vicodin but don't take anything with tylenol (acetaminophen) in it
