This is only until I can get to a dentist. I have had this throbbing toothache for about a week now and I've been taking aleve. At first, the aleve was helping but now it is not doing much. I have also heard bad things about aleve, so I want to lay of of that. I tried orajel, but that only made it worst. What do you guys truly recommend.
I have a throbbing toothache and I was wondering what over the counter meds would you all recommend......?
Toothaches or shall we say strange pain on one of your teeth or the gum-line is usually the starting point of severe or worst dental problems. Aside from giving you sleepless nights of painful miseries and difficult chewing, it could actually threaten your health.

Reply:Don't know how you can put up with a toothache for a week! Although you have probably had it seen to by now - placing a clove by the offending tooth should give relief. - or you could try clove oil.
Reply:When I have tooth problems, I take ibuprofen (600mg.) and use the orajel liquid. Its really strong, and works great!
Reply:TAKE 3-4 ADVIL (IBUPROFEN) EVERY 4-6 HOURS.
ALEVE (NAPROXEN SODIUM) IS 1 PILL EVERY 12 HOURS. THIS WOULD HELP SOME BUT NOT AS MUCH AS ADVIL.
ORAJEL IS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY FOR THIS TYPE OF DENTAL PAIN. IT ONLY WORKS FOR MUCOUS TISSUE INJURIES LIKE SCRAPES, ETC.
GOOD LUCK W/THE DENTAL APPT.
Reply:oil of clove (eugenol) won't cut it. Take 4 tablets of advil every 6 to 8 hours AND 2 extra strength Tylenol every 4 to 6 hours
