Short term toothache pain management

In the mean time, the best over the counter toothache painkillers to take at home are anti-inflammatory analgesics such as ibuprofen. These will help manage the pain and swelling. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients then paracetamol is the next best thing to reduce tooth pain.

Common problematic toothache symptoms

  • Sharp, throbbing or constant tooth pain
  • Tooth pain that results only when pressure is applied to the tooth
  • Swelling around the tooth
  • Fever or headache
  • Foul-tasting drainage from an infected tooth

What causes toothache?

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, whether sharp and throbbing or dull and achy, it can be difficult to bite and chew, concentrate, get through the day, even sleep at night, no matter what over-the-counter medication you take for some relief. The source of tooth pain may be dental decay, an injury or an infection in the tooth. Regardless of the cause, if you have ongoing pain it’s important to address the problem sooner than later.

Toothache FAQs

The majority of toothache symptoms are usually warning signs of a serious dental problem that require professional dental care. Dental infections generally spread and the condition can deteriorate and lead to more serious complications if left untreated. Save your tooth while you can.

Throbbing toothache is usually caused by an abscess infection in a tooth or surrounding gums. The buildup of bacteria within the tooth or gum puts pressure on nerves which leads to throbbing pain. Throbbing tooth pain is a sign that you might have tooth decay, a cavity or a broken tooth.

The best over the counter painkillers for toothache are anti-inflammatory analgesics such as ibuprofen. These will help manage the pain and swelling. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients then paracetamol is the next best thing to reduce tooth pain.
