I tried most of the suggestions listed. Some worked okay but were very temporary. Had been taking 200mg Ibuprofen 3 at a time. Still wasn't working very well. Takes a while for it to work its' way to the toothache. So I figured I would try something different. Crush the Ibuprofen tablets into a fine powder. Wet a Qtip with cold water and roll it through the powder. Place it between your cheek and gums next to the affected tooth. Works alot like chewing tobacco. Your gums absorb the medication much faster and it seems much more effective.
