Pain relief: Sure! however, unless you treat the problem it will only give you temporary relief. See you dentist.

You can: But the sooner you get to see your dentist the sooner the tooth problem will be diagnosed and treated. Feel better soon...

No: Ibuprofen is a better alternative.

Maybe: Each excedrin contains 250 mg acetaminophen, 250 mg Aspirin and 65 mg caffeine. If you are trying to rest maybe caffeine isn't such a good idea.
