REALLY bad toothache - please help?
I've got a really bad toothache, it started this morning and it's got worse through the day. It's there all the time and it's really really sore. I've already taken ibuprofen but it hasn't done anything to the pain. My mum's going to phone the dentist first thing tomorrow morning to get me an emergency appointment, but what can I do until then? I'm 14 years old. The tooth already has a filling in it from a few years ago, so I don't know what's wrong with it. Can it get a cavity even though it's already got a filling in it?

Please tell me how I can get rid of this pain, even just for a little while..........

Keep a pepper(the hole pepper not the powder) and a pinch of sult in your mouth ... bout don't chew it just keep it......it would help....

Oil of cloves will kill the pain immiediately. you'll get it at any chemist shop.

tetsuwan atom!
There is probably a tiny hole somewhere in the sore tooth and the root or nerve is infected (that's what happened to me).

Ask your mum if there's any Whisky or similar and swill your mouth out with it (It won't be enough to get you drunk!).

You can take a LITTLE over the recommended dose of pain killer if it's very bad without it harming you.

If you can find the hole that is causing the pain try to cover it with cotton wool, tissue or blu-tak this will stop air getting to it and will take the edge off the pain to last until the morning.

If your Mum has any sleeping pills you might try one.

I hope some of this will help you get trough tonight, I know how awful it must be.


go to the drug store and purchase oral gel it will numb the area the same as the dentist would with a shot of novacaine although it will not last as long so re-applicatio is needed constantly. You cn always put ice on the area as well(not inside though..Duh?) but other than that that's pretty much your choices-the oral gel should help till tomorrow-

Try 800 mg of IBU. If this still does not work, try holding an ice cube on the skin between the thumb and forefinger on the hand opposite the side the tooth is on.
(tooth on right, ice on left hand, vice versa) Don't laugh, worked for me. It wouldn't hurt to gargle with some warm salt water.

teeth can decay around the edges of a filling or sometimes if the original decay was super deep- it can kill the nerve even years later but to deal with the pain- i have seen people using ice water in their mouths and that seemed to help them . if you can take ibuprophen and Tylenol- alternate them every few hours to keep some sort of pain relief going at all times

an old herbal remedy is oil of cloves rubbed onto the gum by the problem tooth, this is better than taking pain killers.

Just go to the dentist now for emergency treatment.
Don't worry about appointment.
He will surely have some small gap between appointments.
Best of luck.
Hope that you feel better soon.

orgel extra strengh or take 2 alive

Get some Oral-gel from the store. It will numb it so you wont be able to feel the pain.

I understand just how you feel . It sounds like you may have an infection. Rinse your month with some Listerine. As far as the pain Vicoden works best for toothaches.

try to keep it clean as possible. mouth wash will also help, it may sting a little but it will help!

Try using an ice pack...

You've already taken Ibuprofen...there's not much more you can do. Ice your jaw maybe to numb it a bit. Tylenol 3 if you have any. Sounds like you need root canal like I did last week. I worried for nothing though as the root canal was almost painless and it took away the toothache very quickly....good luck to you.

Tie some twine round the offending tooth and then tie the other end to the door handle. Slam the door and hey presto!!! Lol Tom Sawer style!!!

You're going to have to trust me with this one! Do you trust me?? Ibuprofen! If you've taken it and it doesn't work, YOU HAVEN'T TAKEN ENOUGH! Some people are so paranoid about taking large doses, but don't be afraid to take four of the 200 mg. pills (I use the soft gels--they go to work faster!) every four hours, or as long as the pain lasts! And SERIOUSLY, if you take it RELIGIOUSLY, you won't have ANY PAIN!! I'm being honest--it's a miracle drug for me! Don't believe the hype that "you'll suffer kidney damage" or some stupid thing!! As long as you have something to eat/drink with it, there won't be a problem! HONESTLY, there is NO NEED TO BE IN PAIN--I took it just before TWO SEPARATE ROOT CANAL SURGERIES, and I NEVER FELT THE PAIN, if I took four every four hours! You gotta trust me on this, okay?? I know you're only 14, but tell your parents that my father has been a doctor for over fifty years, and he hasn't led me wrong yet!! You don't need to suffer from the toothache pain! Please, at least just try it!!

Have some Tylenol first.

Go to the store and buy Clove. Then boil it a swish the juice around in your mouth. It works miracles!!
Or you can just buy the oil

Put some ground cloves around the tooth. And yes, you can have your cavity grow under the filling or get a new cavity in the same tooth.

If you have a cavity, eat on the opposite side of your mouth, try to keep air out of your mouth, don't eat real warm or cold things.
If you have swelling of your jaw or mouth and a temperature, perhaps your mother could take you to urgent care you may need an antibiotic. Hope these suggestions help.

Use baby orajel... nothing like it!

no name
brush ur teeth,Advil,see a dentist

You can try Orajel cream, it will relieve the pain but only for a short time, and it will make your mouth numb. You pretty much just have to be patient until you go see the dentist, unless you just drink nyquil and sleep the day/night away.

God, and always on the weekend, too, right? We never get a toothache on a Tuesday when you can hop in the car and get it fixed in half an hour. Listen... try hot or cold water first. Find out which one your tooth does not react to. When you find which one, then slosh that water around in your mouth whenever the tooth starts to scream at you.This way you can scream back at it a little. Hot or cold water will help you buy a little time, which is what you need right now. Something which I found helped me was to wad up some Kleenex and get your cheek away from the tooth. Your cheek is warm and that is keeping the tooth hot and that might by why it has so much to say. So - isolate your tooth from your cheek. Listerine tastes awful, but it has a numbing effect to some extent on toothaches. If you can stand the taste for a couple of seconds, try that. What else? As strange as this sounds, I have managed to get two teeth to shut up by squeezing hard on them, slowly and firmly. When I let up, the tooth lets up, too. You have from now until sunset or when you go to bed, to get something into place so you can get a good night's sleep. I wish you all the luck in the world finding someone who can help you nail this one. I have been there and I can honestly tell you I know what you are going through right this minute. God Bless You and your poor tooth, hang in there! And get something in place before it gets dark! - Best from G. in South Portland, Maine.

Clove oil is brilliant, alternate that with toothing gel, and try and get some co-codamol (much better than Paracetamol or ibruprofen)

DONT put ice anywhere near it!!!!!
Unless you want a nice sharp pain....the Clove oil and toothing gel will numb it.

Wet a flannel and microwave it, tie it in a tesco bag, wrap another thin towel round it and press this against your face....trust me, i had tooth ache so bad it went from my neck to my ear, all the way up to the top of my head!!!

I nearly passed out and had to be taken to hospital

try putting ice on it or eating something cold like a popsicle. I think it's possible for it to have a cavity, but I don't know. Hopefully the dentist will sort it out for you!! I hope you feel better...you could also try numbing it, but I don't know how and that might we weird

Mrs. Stone22
I know this sounds gross but you can place Aspirin on the spot where its throbbing or get toilet paper a wet it with hot water(make sure its a thick piece and bite down on it. Ummmm or go to your local drug store and get a toothache gel that will numb your tooth once you rub it arond the area.

good luck!

Use Clove oil available from any health food store or chemist

Ouch, sorry you're in so much pain sweetie, I know how bad a toothache can hurt and it's horrible. You could try some Clove oil if you've got any in the house, or if not, bite down on a wet teabag with the sore tooth, the tannin in the teabag helps with the pain. Sometimes ice helps, try holding an ice cube next to the sore tooth. I hope you manage to get an appointment tomorrow, there's nothing worse than toothache.

And yes, you can get a cavity in a tooth that already has a filling in it, either a new cavity in a "clean" bit of tooth, or more decay around and underneath the filling that's already there.

I have the same problem with my tooth that has a filling. It hurts one day and not the next. I think it could be that part of the filling has came out and is causing air to get down in the cavity of the tooth. The filling will probably have to be filled. If you have a heating pad that really helps if you lay your cheeck on it. And if you don't have a heating pad, then get a wet wash cloth and put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds. The heat will really help. About the Ibuprofen, assuming I don't know how much of it you took, it is safe to take 4 tablets of Ibuprofen which equals 800mg. That is prescription strength in which a doctor would prescribe for pain. Not anymore than that though in a 12 hour period. Hope your pain eases.
