Nurofen is a good choice, or Panadol Extra.

– Wax, this can be handy to cover an exposed wire with braces, or with dentures.

– Floss, and picks: can be used to dislodge a foreign object lodged between the teeth. Chances are you or someone with you will use their teeth to open a bottle, or something else, so a foreign body lodged between the teeth is not strange to be prepared for.

– SOS Dentobox: this medication is the best medium to pout an avulsed tooth in.

– Tea bags: Those can be sued to stop bleeding and they have a soothing effect on inflammation.

Tea bags containing tea from the plant camellia sinensis is better than herbal tea for this purpose.
