Why Ibuprofen is Recommended for a Toothache


Posted on 6/20/2017 by Beautiful Smiles Office

When you find yourself facing a toothache, the first thing you need to do is call your dentist and find out how soon you can be seen. The sooner the better, since you don't know what might be causing the pain.

However, until you can get into the dentist's chair, most dentists will recommend you take ibuprofen for the pain. This is true for people who do not have issues with their stomachs, such as ulcers, and who are not taking any other type of NSAID medication.

Why Ibuprofen is the Pain Reliever of Choice


Ibuprofen, again as long as it is safe for you to take, is a great option for a few different reasons. First, ibuprofen helps to alleviate pain. It works quickly, and it helps remove mild to moderate amounts of pain.

Second, ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory. This means that after you take it, it helps to reduce swelling in your body as it takes down any forms of inflammation.

Finally, ibuprofen is safe to take with many other types of medications without too many restrictions. Find out from your doctor or pharmacist if it will interact with anything you take prior to taking it, so that way you are safe, but for most people, it is a safe medication to take.

If you notice a toothache, take a bit of ibuprofen to help reduce the pain. Just make sure that you do not take too much. Any time you take too much of it, you could end up making it to where you are unable to feel the pain if your dentist wants you to point out where the pain is.

Take enough to not be miserable, and follow the dosing guidelines on the package until you see your dentist. Then, you can speak with them about taking it longer and if that would be necessary.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about your toothache.
