Patient’s with pain in the pulp of the tooth are usually given pain medications such as Motrin or Ibuprofen which have an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
If stronger pain medications are needed usually Vicodin or Hydrocodone can also be prescribed.
Antibiotics should also be considered in acute cases. Amoxicillin usually helps to calm down the pain in combination with the ibuprofen.
If patient is allergic to penicillin they could also be prescribed Clindamycin.
