At what point do I need to force my husband to go to the Dentist/Hospital?


Once every couple of years he gets a bad tooth ache. He takes some antibiotics for a couple days, pain goes away, and he goes on with life. This time he has been on the antibiotic for 2 days. No change and this is not a typical tooth ache. He has radiating pain throughout his whole jaw, all of his teeth, and severe swelling in his lymph nodes (sp?). At what point do I pretty much force him to go get help? I'm worried like crazy and it's like talking to a brick wall because he hates doctors, needles, hospitals, and dentists.

    peeples let me add his blood is becoming systemic, in other words toxic. At this point until the tooth or teeth come out he'll probably need injectable antibiotics because speed is now essential- he needs to get out in front of this thing pronto.

    He's told me I'm wasting my time if I do. This is his one bad trait. Stubborn as can be when it comes to this type of thing.

    I tried telling him people die from it and his response was "people die from driving" Scares the heck out of me and I know he's in pain and I can't do anything!
