Advil (ibuprofen) better: I have found Aleve to be more effective in dealing with muscular aches and pains. Advil or Tylenol (acetaminophen) (if not allergic to these) may be a better choice for toothache pain. See your dentist ASAP as it's only going to get worse.

Yes, but see dentist: The maximum daily dosage for Naproxen is 1500 mg but if should only be used for a short period. See you dentist to have the tooth treated.

No: The maximum effective dose is 550mg. Cutting a 375mg pill in half and taking a 375mg tab would give you a dose of 560mg.
