We will start from most common.

Pain In Midnight:

Dental pain gets worse at nights. So if you are well known about the fact that you have got and existing problem and pain has been there throughout the day always take medication before going to bed as advised by your doctor.
Always remember don’t apply any heat pack unless advised by your dentist in case of dental pain. Apply ice pack instead. It will help  relieve the pain and discomfort. Keep the basic painkillers like ibuprofen and acetaminophen but should only be taken as directed by your doctor.

Warning:- Do not make habit of self medication it is detrimental to your health in long run.

In case of domestic injuries to the tooth and tooth comes out do not panic. Take the sterile cotton and chew on at the site to stop bleeding and keep the tooth soaked in milk in a small container till you visit to your dentist. There are chances in many cases where your natural tooth can be replanted again at the original site.
