I've had about 7 abscessed teeth in my life, all have been horrible. Right now I'm experiencing one on the top left side of my face. My tooth broke at the gum so there's really no tooth anymore, just the roots. Anyways, the best thing to do for an abscess is to honestly take your mind of the pain. For this take 4 Aleve every 6 - 12 hours a long with a narcotic pain killer that your dentist will prescribe you (usually Hydrocodone 10/650, take two so you have have 20mg of opiates in your system and enough APAP), then if you hold a medical marijuana card or have cannabis on you, smoke a bowl or ingest a magical cookie. You will be numb for 6-7 hours, enough to get some sleep. Remember, sleeping with an Abscess is hard and if you don't you will being to hallucinate after 24 hours of no sleep.
