Brief Answer:
NSAIDs are quite safe medicines.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

NSAIDs do not cause heart attack. Depending of the type of NSAIDs you can have ulcers or kidney issues from them (the most common side effects). However in regular dosages, this medicines are safe and can be used even for a long time.
It would be much better to consult a dentist and have the tooth repaired, but if you are unable to do that, NSAIDs should not cause any problems.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
