In brief: Dentist

Find out what is causing your toothache by seeing a dentist.
OTC medications will provide temporary relief.

In brief: Find the cause

Toothache pain is the result of infection or trauma.
The most common infection in a tooth is a complex mixed infection with a bacteria, virus and yeast presence. All three components can be identified and detoxified. The most common biotrauma is from clenching and grinding. Either adjusting the offending force vector or using a shock absorbing niteguard.

In brief: See the dentist!

While antibiotics, narcotics and NSAIDs can provide short term relief from the pain of a toothache, they are only a bandaid! The real cure is to search out the real sourest of dental distress (cavity, abscess, gum disease, partially erupted wisdom tooth, etc.
.) and t have a dentist trained in the healing arts and science of oral health treat the real problem! That's the best medicine!
