Pain in a tooth
Pain in teeth is usually due to a new cavity, additional decay under a leaking old filling or a broken tooth. Sometimes it might be due to damage to the teeth from tooth clenching and grinding. There is nothing you can do except get to a dentist for help. In the mean time you can take temporary pain relievers. A good option is to combine over the counter Ibuprofen (Advil) 200mg and over the counter extra strength Tylenol 500 mg. Take one of each or two of each at the same time every 4-6 hours.
NEVER place an aspirin in the painful area on the gum. Aspirin is a strong acid that will burn the oral tissues.
