  • Sinus meds (like tylenol sinus) will help reduce swelling which in turn helps with the pain.

  • I had a dentist`s receptionist tell me when I couldn`t get in for my toothache to take 800 mg of tylenol. That would be 4 regular tylenol. It did help me.

  • Rub some vanilla extract on the area around the tooth - it will taste horrible, but it works quickly and lasts for a few hours.

  • I was going to say nothing I've ever tried. And I've never tried sinus meds, so give that a shot! And thanks anon for that tip! I HATE toothaches.

  • When I had my root canal, they gave me 3 Tylenol and 2 Motrin, it worked like a charm.

  • Clove oil works. It tastes horrid but takes the edge off. I HATE toothaches.

  • I heard oregano oil put directly on the tooth helps a great deal,though I've never tried it so I'm not much help. clove oil does work if its not overly infected.
