I have an abscessed tooth and cant afford dentist right now. I avoid acidic foods and am careful what I eat. I have trouble falling asleep often. I have to raise my head enough to relieve pressure on the tooth but it works. Mouth wash actually works. For some reason after I rinse the pain slowly goes away for about 15-20 minutes, sometimes just enough to fall asleep. Numb the webbed area between index and thumb with ice, the nerves there affect the face and mouth which helps relieve pain. Oragel makes it worse because its too strong but the mouth sore brand kinda works. Exercise...sounds stupid but works. So when I cant sleep I go for a run, it tires me and working out releases endorphins.
