My tooth is killing me! It came out of nowhere yesterday. It'll stop but as soon as I eat or drink (even just water) it starts to throb. I've been taing Tylenol and Motrin and this toothache stuff my mom has but it all only works for maybe an hour or two and I dont want to keep taking meds and the toothache stuff is so nasty!
Anything out there that you all try that works? I can't see a dentist, no insurance and no money. It sucks.

if you have a cavity, you can dump goodies powder directly on it and let it dissolve. I have a bad tooth right now and it works TONS better than orajel or anything like that. I use the orange kind so it doesn't taste as nasty. It also will work longer than toothache gels. But if you are sensitive to caffeine you might want to stay away from it during the evening hours. If you use it long enough it will deaden the nerve for a looong time! I did it last year and then totally forgot about this cavity until it stated hurting again just the other day. I'm going to have to get it fixed soon...
You can also stand on a bat for tooth pain. (or two soup or veggie cans) just use a chair or something to stabilize yourself. After you are on it for a minute, your tooth ache should disappear!! Really it works!! But.... when you step off, your tooth ache will come back.
