Hello and thanks for asking. Can you describe which tooth is bothering you? Is this an abscess or wisdom teeth or a recent extraction/ root canal issue? In most all of these cases 24 hrs should be enough to start to feel some relief. Let me know the whole picture so I can help further.
Well, it sounds like you need a root canal. The antibiotic should kick in soon . Until it does you can try alternating two extra strength Tylenol and two extra strength Motrin every four to six hours to relieve the pain. Do not take more than four of each a day.
This has been shown to work better or as good as opiates to relieve this kind of pain.
I saw that you were requesting service but did not see your question. Please respond if I can help. Hope you are feeling better!
