can diclofenac help a toothache?

NSAID: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It should help, like tylenol, (acetaminophen) advil, or Motrin would. Get to see your dentist asap to prevent the pain from escalating to a point where it is unbearable.

Possibly...: The best solution is to obtain care from a reputable dentist. Diclofenac will not solve the reason why you have a toothache. If you do not have a dentist please do look online for a dentist with really nice reviews. I realize many patients want to fix their dental problems on their own; however, toothaches will not be cured with medications. Medications can mask the symptoms of an infection....

Good choice: It will help relieve the pain and help to reduce the swelling. It will not however treat the cause of the toothache. If your toothache persists you you should see a dentist.
