Take Ibuprofen if you are able. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water multiple times per day. Apply and ice pack to the outside of your face every 20 minutes. If, cold makes the discomfort worse try warm moist compresses to the outside of your face. See a dental professional as soon as you able.
OTC pain meds can stop the pain, but you should consult a dentist for the cause if it persists.
See a dentist.
Any ibuprofen over the counter meds. or tylenol
You may take pain medicine.
Strong pain medication. And then get an appointment with a dentist ASAP.
Avoid all hot and cold food/beverages and call your dentist. There are many reasons for toothaches from transients forms like mild trauma to severe infections and only your dentist can tell you what’s going on.
It depends on what type of symptoms you have. In general, if you are not allergic to aspirin products, you can take Advil 200 mg up to 3 pills every 6 hours with food. The best thing is to call your dentist and provide more detailed explanations regarding your pain.
You may press hard the end point of "V", where the thumb finger and index finger meet. If you do properly, this may alleviate pain temporarily. However, it is unusual having tooth ache at age 29, suggest to have a consultation with dentist to find out the cause of pain.
