  • Pain medication. If regular meds are not working...then do what I have done lol. GO TO THE ER. Scream of pain. They will give you something strong until you figure out how you are going to get to a dentist. But I would take ibuprofin.

  • You do need to get to a dentist, though...if they're hurting then they're likely impacted and not dealing with them can lead to even more expensive problems down the line. Most dentists have payment programs available.
