This is going to be an extremely long remedy, simply because there's multiple ones.

I'm going to start by saying, it's not that I don't take care of my teeth, which I don't, and that is my fault. But my father and I have toothaches together, literally, it's like he passed it on to me.

There are ways for relief, and ways to indefinitely get rid of it without seeing a dentist.

I'm going to start with the ones I know worked for me.

1) A Towel - Yeah, a towel. The fact is, your nerves spread to your blood vessels, which extend through your entire body as part as the nervous system. A towel around your neck will do the track for temporary relief. I say temporary, because you can't walk around outside with a towel around your neck. I would advise it when you go to sleep, so you don't wake up in pain. DON'T TIE IT. Wrap it around.

2) Vanilla Extract - For me, it worked. ...for about 20 seconds. It took the pain away as soon as I put it around the tooth and gum.

3) Cold Water - Yes, excruciating pain from the chill. But if you have tooth decay, it works wonders.

4) Peanut Butter - I didn't end up dabbing it on, I ended up damping the entire side of my gum in it as well as around the tooth. It works, but your tastebuds are going to go nuts licking it.

5) Whiskey - Every single alcoholic beverage in my house is at least 20 years old, and very strong. This did nothing for me.

6) Acetaminophen - Um, yeah, don't even bother unless you're popping 3 excedrins at a time to go to sleep right after.

7) Breathe through your nose, exhale out of your mouth - Believe it or not, this works. You're taking the O2 (oxygen) in through your nose, which is clean air, and letting the CO2 (carbon dioxide) out through your mouth. The CO2 turns into warm air, being your blood is warm (unless you're a vampire I suppose?). Make sure to breathe directly at the part of your mouth the toothache is occurring.

8) Fugheddaboutit - Exactly what it says. Put your mind to work and think of as many things as you can. Seeing the word 'toothache toothache toothache' written down the page and trying to put pressure on it with your tongue only makes you think about it more, causing more pain. The more you forget about it, the longer is stays away. I'm serious. But then again, don't just tell someone to 'forget about your toothache'. Obviously, only advisable when you're not about to go to sleep.

9) Your nostrils lead to your lungs, too - Similar to 8, don't breathe through your mouth at all. Breathe through your nose. This leaves some CO2 passing through your mouth which puts pressure that is invisible to the naked eye on your tooth. It may sound stupid, but it works.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to lather my gums up in Skippy, wrap a towel around my neck like a muslim and fall asleep like a baby.
