Already been, had to wait 2 weeks to see him and he sent me away after taking xrays. Got to wait till next thursday to see him again so need some relief:-(

Clove Oil from a Chemist Also, spiders hate the smell so no spiders going in your mouth at night. BONUS!

i know in the olden days (!) people used to chew cloves when they had toothache. which really must have been pretty frequently! best of luck with the taste though!:thumbsup:

Nicotine!!, takes you mind off it! :giggle:

Paracetamol is good though..

I would change dentists or at least call them to see if you can pick up a prescription for antibiotics if there is an infection. If not, they can prescribe better painkillers. He should have done this straight away.

Done the clove oil, not having much effect though. Nicotine actually makes it worse (according to the dentist) but i'm soldiering on;-) :giggle:

As its hot/cold related im thinking exposed nerves at the gumline. Nearly shot through the ceiling when the dentist tested it with his compressed air thingy LOL.

wrap chewing gum round it... and leave till you see dentist, its cos the nerve is exposed to air / cold/ hot... cover it with anything....good luck!

That's what i've been trying to do but as its on the inside its problematic getting anything to stay in place. At one point I even considered silicone sealant or Araldite, but thought they may be a bit ott lol (pain, the TRUE mother of invention pmsl). Not too bad at the moment as I gave in and took another 600mg of ibuprofen:roll:

Im sure ive seen in Asda a tooth filling pack,,, about £4/£5 but worth it if it takes the pain away.. if not then try Boots.. ive seen it somewhere.

Try rinsing your mouth with something called oraldene,you can buy it from most supermarkets.
Be warned though it does hurt a bit when you first do it but it definitly worked for me when I cracked my tooth.

pull the thing, mole grips with a cotton wool pad, mines pressure pain so that does hurt, if yours is only tempereture sensative then it should be all fine.

I did check on Boots online the other day but couldn't find it, i'll have a look in Asda tonight, never thought of there:thumbsup:

Teddy: Mouthwash does calm it a bit (probably by overloading the nerves) but it comes back pretty quick.

Minstrelman: If it were at the front and accessible... Already had 3 front ones out DIY with a screwdriver/knife over the years. Better a lot of pain in a short time than over a long period:giggle: For some reason the wife thinks i'm sick:whistling:

mine says the same, I've had an abcess this week, subsided a bit now but did try to pull it ended up wussing out like a lil girl though, killed the nerve to lost the sensativity in it now.

I also o/d on ibroprofen but also with carling (while playing halo 3 keep my mind off it) when I closed my eyes to go sleep last night I could see flashes of colour, freaky.

Pmsl. At least this is taking my mind off it;-) :-D

next weeks lesson - living with heamorroids :lol:

tesco value ibuprofen tablets, i'm sure they just tic tacs (thinkin out loud here)

i was suffering major toothache a few years back, and the only thing that actually made any difference was aspirin. it just works better for toothache than other painkillers. that and a hot water bottle against the face :thumbsup:

Try local smaller chemists,I have only seen a temporary filling pack once and that was in a really small chemist,they the type of places that have 2 of everything on the shelves.

Try gargling with salt water.

Dentist?

Concentrate your brushing on the specific area that hurts, its will be painful afterwards but over the next couple of days the pain will gradually go away. Make sure its a good make toothpaste, and brush for several minutes morning and evening. :-D

Whisky on the tooth and ice pack on face -(dentist recommended ice pack once-i recommend whisky as well !!)

Stop.Hammer time.





LOL get to the dentist and say

" you cant touch this":giggle:

That is what my dentist has told me to do when i have trouble with my wisdom teeth. Certainly worth a try :thumbsup:

Kids teething gel worked for my hubby.

Have you seen ]this in the news.
Don't mean to scare you, maybe worth chasing up the dentist.

Orajel, Extra Strength Dental Gel, Boots, or any Chemist.
About £6.00 for a 5.3g tube.

Whisky - hold it over the offending tooth for as long as possible, it numbs the area and really does work honest!

Clove oil works sometimes, but I found a mouthful of neat scotch swilled around like a mouthwash for as long as possible numbs everything. Worked for me. Haven't been to the dentist in 37 years now. All the best. Shane McGowan.

ditto on the whisky (no im not just trying to boost the scotish econamy) works like clove oil but tastes waaaaaaaaaaaay nicer and after a few you find you don't care so much.......

not sure if this has been said but get some toothpaste on ur finger and just put it on the tooth that hurts leave it for a while and it should help

Well I treid nearly all of the suggestions and they all work to a point.

Just back from the dentist and he pulled the one of my teeth out. Not the one that was hurting but the one in front of it. Had a hell of a time of it as well as it was one of the back ones:giggle:

Net result is, I cant feel any painf from the tooth that was hurting.... Because of the pain from the one thats no longer ther BOOM BOOM!

Hmmmm. Joking aside it does seem to have eased it a bit, shall see how it goes.....
