  • There are "toothache" kits at Walgreens. I've never tried them, but I've heard people say that they help.

  • get a bag of ice and put it on your face closest to where it hurts. When you feel the pain coming on take some tylenol as that will help ward off the pain. Ambesol helps, that red cross stuff for a tooth ache helps but it SOO nasty tasting it's not worth using. LOOK for a dental college near you for Really cheap dental work as well.

  • Vanilla extract is a miracle drug for toothaches. It will taste really bad and you will have a sharp pain, but then nothing, it really does take the pain completely away and it can work for days, not hours. All you need is a little, dip your finger in the bottle and rub it around the tooth. Good luck (c:

  • try to find a dental office that will see you. A lot of hospitals have a dental clinic. An untreated dental problem can cause many other problems!
