Dental and Oral Health (Seniors)

Alternative to Tylenol

05/08/2008

Question:

I am a 64 yr old woman. I got fake teeth couple of months ago and I have a lot of pain in my gums. I went to my dentist several times but he just suggests Tylenol. Can you please tell me any over-the-counter mediction to help me?

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, NetWellness experts try to answer general questions about health. I am sorry, but I can not prescribe or suggest any medication without a clinical exam. I will suggest that you have a second opinion from another dentist that you can trust.
