Dental Pain

About dental pain...


Pain and discomfort in the teeth, for example, after dental treatment or operation (8b) is a common problem, particularly among people with poor oral hygiene (9a). Toothache and associated dental pain is a result of dental and tooth decay (8a), injury (8a) and infection (8a). Tooth ache or pain may also include momentary or lingering pain after eating hot or cold food (8).

How Ibuprofen helps...


Ibuprofen is an effective treatment for rapid pain relief (18a) and is effective in controlling pain and inflammation in a variety of inflammatory and painful conditions (18b), such as toothache and other dental pain (18a). Effective (18b, 20a), well-tolerated (18c) and with a favourable safety profile (18d), Ibuprofen is the active ingredient in Nurofen Tablets.
