Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions, folks. They really helped. I used a tea bag (tried green tea, then peppermint, which tasted better) with a drop of tea tree oil and wrapped it around a pinch of sea salt, placing it over the infected area as a poultice, then followed it with minced garlic in vodka as a mouthwash kind of deal, focusing on the abscessed tooth and surrounding gum. I held each one in my mouth as long as I could stand it. Did this a few times a day, two days in a row. It made that side of my mouth go all tingly and numb and TOTally killed my sense of taste for a couple days, but the swelling was completely gone by day three. I know I really need to get to the dentist, but finances don't allow it and, for the now, at least, this has taken care of the pain and half-a-chipmunk face.
Good luck, fellow sufferers!
