What is the best treatment for toothache?

Hello my 15 year old daughter had toothache w/c 14/2/11, we went to the dentist 21/2/11 he could find no cause for toothache. 22/2/11 she had her bottom brace fitted, followed by a couple of days of dull ache as expected. Pain free for a few days. Back to school today and she comes home with a raging toothache. Please can you help, could it be a stress thing?

Hello,
There can be discomfort with tooth movement. Your daughter may bite differently and put temporary additional biting pressure on certain teeth. I suggest advising the orthodontist of her discomfort. Try some antiinflammitory medication such as Tylenol or Advil. If she does not feel better, make sure to have an exam and X-ray if needed to rule out a tooth problem such as an abscess.
Thank you for your inquiry. Stress can add to this as well.
