Emergency Dental Pain Relief

The advice on this page is to help you control any Dental Pain until you can see a Dentist.

Dental Pain is best controlled with normal painkillers, so use whichever type you find works best for you. In the vast majority of emergencies, dental pain can be controlled with paracetamol and ibuprofen (nurofen). These can be purchased without prescription.

If you are taking any other drugs it might be worth confirming with your pharmacist that the drugs you are buying over the counter will not interact significantly with them.
