Medications for toothache

Here are 4 useful things and medications to keep at home when you have toothache:


1. The toothbrush and toothpaste is essential to use daily, especially in the evening together with flossing and mouthwash with mouthwash, (preferably the transparent one to keep white teeth) helps you remove all those residues that remain between the teeth and in which the most unpleasant dental pains appear later.

With clean teeth, you stay healthy.

2. Toothpaste for dentinal sensitivity is the well-known Sensodyne Rapid Relief or any other toothpaste for very sensitive teeth that contains potassium nitrate. A gingival gel for canker sores, ulcers or inflammation of the gums. Example: Gengigel, Parodium, Elugel or Alovex.


An anti-inflammatory that you are not allergic to such as: Ibuprofen, Paracetamol or Ketonal Duo will help you when you have toothache.

Consult your dentist before taking any medication for toothache!

3. An Augmentin antibiotic if you are not allergic to amoxicillin, clavulanic acid, penicillin or other adjacent components. Augmentin is an antibiotic that kills bacteria, not viruses. If you have ever had an allergic reaction or hypersensitivity to any antibiotic, do not take Augmentin.


Clindamycin (Clindamycin or Klacid) or Erythromycin is recommended for people allergic to amoxicillin, ampicillin, penicillin. Antibiotics are taken by prescription, so consult your dentist beforehand.


4. A temporary cement for seals or cemented crowns. Dentek or Dentemp that you can order online. On OLX, he found a patient of mine, I explained to him how to proceed and he succeeded.


We will need a little more calm and patience until we can get to the dentist.


With good thoughts and no toothache,
