I have a toothache, Im pretty sure it gonna need pulled, its a wisdom tooth, But i have not seen a dentist in about 6 years, i was told i have bad enamel and that it would affect the health of my teeth, The thing is, i lost my wallet, and i dont have my ID since this is an emergency would a insurance card, ss# and birth certificate work? I feel like im dying....

Gargle with salt water.

Swish with coconut oil for 20 minutes a day.

Until you can get to the dentist.

you'd have to call the dentist and find out if they can take that as ID, but I'm pretty sure you need photo ID.

 What kind of coconut oil?

Quoting sugareemommee: Gargle with salt water. Swish with coconut oil for 20 minutes a day. Until you can get to the dentist.

Forget the coconut oil, go for oragel ( it's lidocaine gel and will numb it a bit) then ask the pharmacist for Tylenol #1 (they keep it behind the counter but it's not prescription). Tell the pharmacist about your tooth, ask if you can take three tylenol #1 along with 2 Ibuprofen and oragel on the sore tooth and gum. Then call a dentist. You don't have any other option. Good luck!

You got any whole cloves in your spice rack? If so, chew on one, it numbs it.
