Can consumption of 10 ibuprofen a day for toothache, be harmful?

I'm 38, weigh 70 kg, and have been having quite severe toothache. I'm working on fixing that (i.e. dentist), but due to severe fear haven't been able to get myself to go yet.
I've been treating this toothache with a combination of paracetamol 500mg (sometimes with coffeine 50mg) and ibuprofen 400. I've been taking ~10 tablets of the latter a day, one or two a time, with 1-2 hours interval. There are no side effects.
1: Is this considered harmful?
2: are there better options (painkillers) that are not prescription that i can take to deal with this?

Thanks for asking.
Painkillers can cause you a stomach upsate if taken in large no. Kindly consult your dentist immediately because you are bearing more pain rather than caused by dental procedures.A simple 10min visit can save you from painkillers.Meanwhile shift to Tab. Ketorol DT .Its a powerful painkiller comparitively.
