Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
They could affect surround teeth if the wisdom teeth have an infection associated with it, or that the wisdom teeth positioning is causing the other near by teeth to be more mispositioned.

Thank you...:(;( took two excedrin extra strength gell caps... Ok to take 3???
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Depends on the dosage of the Excedrin - usually 3 every 6 hours is still an acceptable amount to take.
I hope this helps, please click on ACCEPT, thank you

Omg this sucks..... :(:(:( I wanna cry:(:(:( I'll try a 3rd one soon.. Give this a chance to settle in.. It's only been about 15 /20 min...

This sounds like you have an abscess or possibly an infected root - so removing the tooth will prove the best option for you and take away the pain.And, you do not need your wisdom tooth, so I would advise on removing it.

I have several coming out.. just i wasnt planning on doing it so soon..i saw my dentist last week..who reffered me to the oral surgeon.. who i wasnt supposed to see till next week.. but they are upping my appointment to tomorrow...Theres no puss or redness to the area that i can see... nothing swollen either..
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Probably an infected root - and once this is pulled you should be fine.

Thank you.. they say on the excedrin bottle not to take over 8 per day.. if I take a 3rd one im up to 5.. im weary about taking more.. but i feel like i might need it... so it really is ok to take another if i need to???? Like I dont take medication unless i need to.. and apparently this is necessary...
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Well about the only thing you need to know about is the acetominophen dosage and you can take 1000mg at a time with the Excedrin.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
