Like so many of you, I have been suffering from tooth pain; Although I am very thankful for this website to obtain as much information on eliminating the pain of a tooth-ache, nothing will take the pain away forever other than going to the dentist. I tried many of the things on here to relieve my pain, they did for a small amount of time, but then I had horrific swelling in my gum on the side of the tooth ache. I finally got up the courage to go to the dentist yesterday, because it is the fear of them I wouldn't go originally. I had an abcessed tooth! The dentist drained the abcess, put me on anti-biotics, some pain meds and now I am finally able to rest.
I know the $$ is another big reason why most of us don't regularly go to the dentist. I was able to find a dentist in my area with a flexible payment plan, thankfully.
I am EXTREMELY grateful for this website.... Good Luck!
