Temporarily: If you have a toothache, then usually there is some good reason causing it. You can temporarily relieve it by taking some otc meds like tylenol/ibuprofen/or aleve (naproxen). Sometimes these meds won't work if you the pain is too great. Going to see the dentist will give you a good idea of what is causing your tooth ache and he/she will give you options on how to treat that tooth correctly.

OTC Pain Meds: For a very short while. There are no home remedies or cures for rotten teeth. No magic pills or rinses or mouthwashes. Toothaches need to be treated locally by a dentist, someone who has years of experience treating these conditions. The sooner you call the sooner you will feel better. Please don't delay, the pain may soon be unbearable.
