Pain in a tooth
If you suffer from pain in a tooth you should contact your dentist as soon as possible — it can indicate a serious problem. Often, pain in a tooth is a sign that you have a cavity. Other causes for tooth pain could be grinding or clenching your teeth when sleeping or awake.
Taking over-the-counter pain relievers can help immediately ease some of your discomfort. Combine over-the-counter extra strength Tylenol 500 mg with Ibuprofen (Advil) 200 mg. Every four to six hours, take one or two of each.
