Answer to your Health Question

Question: What can I do for a toothache, the nerve is exposed, when the dentist isn't open? Jane

Answer: Dear Jane,

There are emergency dentists that are open on weekends and can treat patients as soon as possible. Over the counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can offer temporary relief.

When a dentist is not available, your primary health physician can prescribe codeine, commonly used for toothaches.
