  • Anbesol, chew on aspirin (melt it right on the tooth), bag of frozen veggies pressed against face. Can you get a script for some vicodin or something strong at least until the pain goes away and you can get it fixed?

  • sometimes when i have teeth pain i brush my tooth very lightly to massage it sometimes it helps sometimes not. try adult orajel, and see if you can go to any kind of doc to at least get some pain meds so you can at least sleep.

  • There's something called MI Paste that my dentist gave me (I need a root canal). It will kill the pain for a day or two. You put it on when you go to bed, and it sticks to your tooth like glue, letting it soak in to desensitize the nerves.
