Why You Don’t Treat a Toothache with Aspirin
When you have a toothache, the first thing you need to do is consult a dentist. However, until your appointment, it is important that you treat the pain. Using an over-the-counter pain reliever is a good idea, but be careful about how you use aspirin to treat a toothache.

If you look up treatments for tooth pain, you may see a recommendation to put crushed aspirin directly on the tooth or the gum tissue over the tooth, but using aspirin directly can end up leaving you in more pain. If you were to do this, you may burn your gums due to the acidic ingredients in aspirin and cause more mouth pain. When using over-the-counter pain medication to treat tooth pain, be sure to use them as instructed. This means swallowing the oral tablets or capsules with lots of water.
