Short-Term Only: Any pain medication or anti-inflammatory drug can help with the symptoms of pulpitis, just like any other painful condition. However, medications never address the cause of the tooth pain. That can only be done by your dentist, generally by getting inside the tooth & fixing whatever's wrong. Sometimes it can be fixed from outside the tooth too. You can't do it yourself, however, so see a dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
