I got some stuff at the drug store to put on my tooth, can I just keep using that?

There are good products available over the counter that will help relieve tooth pain. If the pain is severe and lasts more than a day or two it is better to see us so that we can check it out. Sometimes even if the pain goes away, it may be that the nerve has died and is at risk of infection. Sometimes the pain is temporary and goes away on its own too. If you have any doubts, it is better to have it checked.
