Hello Doctor, Its been long since I have visited to the dentist, earlier I used to go for cleaning my tooth, but since when I got allergic, I stopped going. Recently, my tooth started paining and I am taking a pain killer, should I take a pain killer or visit a doctor?

Painkillers are not solution excessive use can be very harmful. Consult your doctor, a six monthly visit to your Dr. Is always good.
