If you are missing a filling or have a cracked tooth the pain is the WORST. Here's my remedy that works great (until you get to the dentist). Go to a Hallmark store, they sell packages of these little soft wax 'dots' (they are used to secure taper candles in a candle holder). Dry the sore tooth as much as possible. Warm up a little chunk of a dot in your hand (it's already nice and pliable) and gently (duh) press it into that area. It stops air from reaching the nerve. No air-no pain! Do not try this with regular candle wax when in desperation mode! You'll just make the pain worse (I know from experience). But really, these candle dots are a true miracle! I've shared a few with friends in pain and I've became their hero. Replace as needed. Good luck!
