Possibly: It is probably the acetaminophen and the aspirin in excedrin that help the toothache. if you don't have acetaminophen or ibuprofen around, I suppose you could try excedrin.

It Can: If the cause of the toothache is related to inflammation, this will help. See your Dentist ASAP to determine the cause and have the problem remedied. Good Luck.

Temporarily: Toothache usually (but not always) caused by infection/abscess. Pain killer will mask the pain symptom, but not cure the infection. Pills won't do it. You have to see a Dentist to have the infection treated. Please call your Dentist NOW.
