I recently visited my dentist for an infected tooth, this tooth I had already has a dentist appointment with the same dentist to have this tooth removed. well I went to dentist for the infection . in the office I received a total set of mouth x rays done, the x ray did show an issue with involved tooth, the tooth is broken at the gumline, there is clearly seen the root canal white thin post appearance. around the tooth was swollen, red clearly infected. my dentist prescribed amoxicilin 1000 milligrams three time a day, peridex mouth wash.when I inquired for an rx pain medication, dentist gave em an rx for predisone. I informed my dentist of the pain I am experiencing is not being relelived by the motrin, tylenol naprosyn that I heve been taking prior to ciming to dentist was not releieving the tooth pain. my dentist did not provide me with a rx for a strong pain medication. I did go by the pharmacy to fill the rx's as per dentist prescribed. the prednisone provided no releif from tooth pain. I called my dentist the next day, informed the dentist that I received no pain releif and if I could receive a prescripton pain medication for dental pain releif. well,the dentist informed me that I should try naprosyn, motrin or tylenol for pain relief. I did not obtain releif from the over the counter suggested medication. I did take the prescribed predisone, peridex mouthwash and amoxicillin medication as prescribed 3 weeks later I remain on amoxicillin,predisone, and still taking the suggested over the counter pain medication still I remain in pain. I have an appointment with the same dentist to have tooth removed and a bone graft to be done in prep for an implant. I am wondering , since I did not receive any pain releif from the suggested over the counter medication and prescribed medication of amoxicillin peridex mouth wash and predisone , I am considering to canceling all my dentist appointment with this dentist and seek out another dentist. I am not a drug seeker, all I request is a rx pain medication for the couple of days after the tooth extraction this dentist I have been a patient for 5 years, I have never attempted to "scam" any sort of rx for pain. this dentist has a DEA license, he has no encoumbered license. I am wondering If I go ahead keel next weeks appointment, have the extraction , would I receive rx pain medication , or will I receive the suggestion to take over the counter med ? I am bit fustrated I receive no pain releif any suggestion?
