I have had problems with abscess and cracked teeth lately. The pain is very severe. There is no cure except for a root canal or pulling of the tooth. If you can't get to a dentist immediately, try to have some augmentin and amoxycilin on hand and start taking it. Start with the amoxycilin. If that doesn't seem to work in a few hours, switch to the augmentin. Also have a supply of vicodin handy in case the pain gets bad. If it is a cracked root, the antibiotic may not work too well because the structure of the tooth is breached and that's where the vicodin can save you until you can get the tooth pulled.
