I dont have the money for the dentist so thats out of the question. I have tryed taking tylonal and iburphren I even took 2 teaspoons of my husband cough syrup he doesnt need it anymore. I have tryed gargling with salt water brusing the tooth using mouth wash using orajel. I just dont know what to do. Does anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately, that is one ache that cant be taken care of. I have no teeth because I cannot afford a dentist, no one will take paymnents. So they keep pulling them in the church clinics. Painkillers, advil, the spice "cloves" on the tooth is supposed to help. I really sympathize with you. Have you tried a clinic, your state might have one but dental is hard. Good luck and Ill say a prayer for you.

do you have any whiskey...If you have some take a drink and hold it on the tooth for as long as you can before you swallow it or spit it out

or if you have any cloves or clove oil that really helps...put some on a tissue or cottonwool and hold it on the tooth

Have you tried a heating pad on your cheek? Intermix heat with cold and see if you get any relief. Have any of your wisdom teeth came in yet? If it is the wisdom teeth in the back...you might have to get them extracted.

Does chewing ice help at all?

have you tried rinsing your mouth with peroxide and warm water together if you put a warm cloth on your cheek it will make the infection come out and it will start to swell so try a ice pack

RW,

Try taking the Advil Liqui-Gels. They generally work better on toothache pain than even pain killers.

Also, make the cloves into a paste using water, smear on the tooth and surrounding gum area. When you get a chance, you can find "Oil of Cloves" in the pharmacy, and that will do a good job.

However, my best suggestion is to try to find a dentist that will work out payments with you to get the tooth taken care of.

In the meantime, maybe these short term fixes will help you out.

There are dental clinics in my area that offer sliding scale fees. You might try calling some of the dentists in your areas and asking about something similar in your area.

You need to find a dentist who is willing to accept payments. Your tooth hurts right now because it is dying.

Go to the dentist, RW, before the tooth dies.

Go to the dentist.I know of someone who had a heart attack from an absess tooth. The infection went to the blood and to the heart. The dentist has told me that the gums and teeth are ways to see symptoms of other ailments.

Try out  clove oil pulling, it will provide you some relief. You need to visit a dentist soon and ensure that your insurance will cover this treatment. I had my root canal treatment from "United Dental Care", and it is very much cheaper and efficient than other dental clinics.

You should take him at dentist, so it's quite fixable.

Actually, it's a doctor's issue to fix as usually it's related to high teeth sensitivity. It's treatable , but not within a moment. So, you should be patient and prepare your kid to wait some. And i do realize that it's hard. If i were you i would try to reach for Aspen dental as i've seen what they were doing and i guess they can handle that. And in overall, they work quite professional and this problem is not an end of the world at all.
