Best is to find out why you have a toothache..the dentist can find the cause and treat it accordingly. In the meantime, motrin/tylenol/aleve may provide some relief. Look in your mouth, if you have whitish ulcer on the gum (aphthous ulcer), this can cause aching tooh as well--but this will heal in a week or so with/out treatment. Consult your dentist/doc. Good luck

Dr. John DeWolf answered:

why i still have a tooth pain after dry socket treatment( medicated dressing )?

Likely infection

The topical pain killers in dry socket dressings are designed to provide quick acting and sometimes short term relief while the underlying infection starts to resolve. Since that infection can take up to a week to resolve, it is common for pain to recur and require replacement of the dry socket dressing a few times while managing the condition. Systemic painkillers like ibuprofen are very helpful.

why i still have a tooth pain after a medicated dressing treatment in the socket?

Dry socket

Canker_sore
It is common to have pain after an extraction. It sounds as if you had a dry socket and the dentist placed some dry socket paste. This dressing may need to be replaced again a couple of times for the dry socket to resolve. I would go see the dentist and have him clean the area and place more paste. The extraction site should start feeling better a little bit every day. If not, something is wrong.

Are there any side effects from biodentine as I still have tooth pain 10 days after treatment?

The tooth

Teeth
probably has a very deep filling with pulpal approximation or slight pulpal exposure which is why biodentine was used. If the pain is still present and the occlusion is normal, then the tooth probably need to be treated endodontically (root canal)

Sinusitis
Go to doctor for evaluation and treatment. When your teeth and ears start hurting those can be a sign of worsening sinus infection not just a cold

Orajel doesn't help with my toothaches! Pain meds don't work either! During the middle of the night or weekend, where should I go for tooth pain??????

Solve the problem!

Crown
If you recently had dental work, call your dentist. If you didn't, call your dentist. Like a splinter in your finger, dental pain exists because there is a problem. Would you take pain medication and antibiotics to manage the splinter? Not likely: you would take it out! Don't just medicate, solve the problem & be well :-)

Most likely you have an infection on the tooth. See your dentist as soon as possible so they can make the right diagnosis.

Dr. Ram Madasu answered:

I have intense cramps in my left arm and pain in jaw that feels like toothache. I also get left arm spasms and cramping from time to time. My tooth pain is intense. What should I do?

See dentist and MD

Tooth_pain
See your dentist. Dental pain can be intense. If there is inflammation in your jaw muscles, this can radiate to the back of the neck and possibly the arm on the affected side. See your doctor and get your electrolytes checked.

Best home remedy for a toothache? I have what I'm sure is a toothache. It hurts, and I've never had tooth pain like this before. Is there anything I can do at home to make it go away, or at least go away until I'm able to see a dentist? .

Ibuprofen

If you have ibuprofen 200 mg, you can take 2,3 or 4 tablets together with food every six hours to alleviate the pain until you see your dentist
