  • Next week! Can you find another dentist? or go to an urgent care center? I think I'd call the dentist office back and ask them for a suggestion for another dentist, or look in the yellow pages, although I didn't have much luck when I did that- picked one that wasn't very good. Anyway, you shouldn't have to wait that long for a bad toothache. When I had a filling that hurt I rubbed whiskey on the gum. You can also use painkillers. But if you have an infection you really shouldn't be waiting for that long to get it taken care of, particularly in the tooth or gum.

  • 800 mgs of Advil...it is an anti inflamatory and the best thing for non prescribtion pain relief. I use this with orajel the liquid type and pour it right on the tooth and then soak a cotton ball in it or a Q-tip and leave it between my cheek or gum and the tooth. Good luck.

  • They have this stuff at at a drugstore that works wonders,I can't remember the name of it, and that doesn't help, does it.. It tastes nasty but it works. Walgrens has it and so does CVS
