Painkillers for toothache

The best painkiller for most dental pain is Iburpofen, if you cannot take Ibuprofen then Paracetamol is a good alternative. Any good Pharmacist will advise you. Most adult patients don’t take enough of the painkiller for it to be effective! They are very safe and it is best to be comfortable! Always read the label and follow the dose instructions.

After dental surgery it is always best to rest, don’t underestimate the fact that you have had surgery, take it easy and follow the postoperative instructions your dentist has given you. This will mean that you recover faster and by taking an effective dose of painkiller for the first three days after surgery e.g. having a tooth removed, you will recover faster and require less painkillers in the long run.

This is the information we provide for our patients when we prescribe Ibuprofen.

Ibuprofen 400mg tablets

This medicine is available without prescription for you to treat mild illnesses without a doctor’s help.  Nevertheless you still need to use Ibuprofen 400mg tablets carefully to get the best results from them.

What is Ibuprofen and what is it used for?

How does the medicine work?

Ibuprofen belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), these work by changing the body’s chemical response to pain, swelling and high temperature.  It is an excellent painkiller and ideal for toothache and after surgery.
