I wonder it is a cox2 inhibitor and is used for various typpes of arthritis (pain from that ) menstrual pain, I have a friend who is pharmacist and has had a great deal of experience at the local hospital where I used to get our Chemo therapy meds from when I worked in chemolab his answer not usually, I wouldn't unless I talked with a dentist and then they usually use something else, just had to ask I had checked myself but I thought maybe it could be and maybe a dentist given the right circumstances would say it would not be of harm and would be worth a try but for now this is the answer I have got from these sources great question

Possibly, but only if your dentist has prescribed it for your tooth pain.

Celebrex is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain.
Celebrex is available only on prescription. It should only be taken by the patient for which it is prescribed and for the problem it was prescribed for.

If you have dental pain try taking ibuprofen, also an NSAID, available over the counter. Talk to your pharmacist.
If the pain continues you should see your dentist.
