In brief: See your dentist

You may need some meds to help or of course a filling.
But they could get you a liquid form of medicine if needed.

In brief: Advil (ibuprofen)

Children's liquid advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen would work well.
Usually there is 100mg in a teaspoon. The dose for an adult is 600mg (6 tsp) to 800mg (8tsp) every six hours.
