Ibuprofen: This over-the-counter pain medication is recommended for most dental pain needs. It is strong and also has a anti-inflammatory property that helps to reduce any swelling, too. It can be used as directed or through prescription of your dentist. If you need some added analgesic powers, take some tylenol (acetaminophen) with it to boost the intensity. They will work synergistically to raise the action of both.
