Advil is a type of pain reliever that is similar to ibuprofen. A variety of Advil products are available for purchase over-the-counter. There are several different types of Advil that are available to help treat pain associated with headaches, muscle aches, and toothaches.
Tooth Pain Treatment with Advil
If you are having tooth pain, a majority of the types of Advil will help ease the pain you are experiencing. These tablets should only be given to children over the age of 12. The standard dose is one tablet every four hours. This type of Advil is also available in caplets and gel caplets, which are also available in 200-milligram doses.
For children under the age of 12, a child should be given Children’s Advil. However, it is always best to talk to your child’s doctor about any other medications that could be safer to help treat the tooth pain if Advil for kids does not relieve the pain.
Advil tablets can usually help to treat minor pains, but a majority of people seem to recommend Advil Liqui-Gels. These tablets essentially liquid-filled gel capsules that dissolve faster upon ingestion.
Advil Liqui-Gels advertise that they provide fast relief from your tooth pain. This type of Advil comes in 200-milligram liquid filled gel capsules. If the capsule size of Advil Liqui-Gels is too big, there is a mini version of the same capsule available. Advil Liqui-Gel Minis come in a capsule that is 33% smaller than the original Advil Liqui-Gel.
Advil film-coated tablets and caplets are also available for purchase over-the-counter at your local drugstore. These pills are said to dissolve more quickly, which will relieve your pain much faster. For all the mentioned Advil products, you should not take more than six pills daily.
Remember to talk to your doctor or a professional healthcare provider if you cannot decide which type of medication to use for your condition. Finally, it is important to remember that Advil can only alleviate the pain temporarily.
