If your pain is from your gums, however, it can provide short term relief. The problem is you need to be very careful that you don't swallow too much. It's very easy to get too much which can upset your stomach. See a dentist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Can i combine Aleve and tylenol (acetaminophen) to help relieve my toothache? If not, which OTC pain killer is best for my toothache?
Yes: Yes, in fact those two in combination work quite well. When the pain progresses, often times no pain medications will "make a dent" in it. You should interpret your pain as a warning sign and be evaluated before it progresses to a dental emergency. An alternative to aleve (naproxen) is ibuprofen.
