How to ease the pain until I can get to a dentist

I have a couple teeth that need work badly and they are killing me right now. I have dental insurance through work but can't afford the co-pay right now. How can I ease the pain for a month or so til I can go to the dentist? I have been using Aleve and Ibprofine off and on all week but today they haven't touched the pain at all. Orajel worked for a while too but not anymore.
