At Dental Fear Central, we realise that you may be tempted to perform DIY dentistry rather than face a dentist. Please note that this is neither recommended nor endorsed – this is strictly damage-limitation territory. Dentists have many tales to tell of people too frightened to receive dental care – these tend to involve attempts at cutting out teeth and inappropriate use of superglue. Before you attempt anything downright dangerous, have a look through our website – and find a dentist who is right for you. He or she is out there.(endodontic motor)

Even if you have found the dentist of your dreams, you can find useful tips for dental emergencies on this page.

Pain Relief for Toothache
The best over-the-counter painkillers for toothache are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs for short. These include ibuprofen, or even better, ketoprofen if you can get hold of it. Ibuprofen is sold both as a generic version (cheaper!) and under many brand names. The most common are Nurofen (UK) and Advil and Motrin (US). Ketoprofen is either sold under its “real” generic name or under a whole host of tradenames – just ask your pharmacist for “Ketoprofen”. Dentists may prescribe 800mg Ibuprofen every four to six hours as an alternative to narcotic pain relievers. Do not take these if you have asthma and always read the label for contraindications!

Paracetamol/Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or even aspirin (Disprin) are also pretty good for dental pain. Some people have reported that Paracetamol with Codeine has worked for them when other pain meds wouldn’t. However, dental pain often comes from inflammation and pressure on various tissues and nerves of the face. NSAIDs can be better for dental pain because they are both pain relievers and good anti-inflammatories (vs. acetaminophen which is only a pain reliever). It can be very dangerous to take too much paracetamol/acetaminophen.
