Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but whole cloves work well. I work in a restaurant and my pain started mid shift one day. As the hostess, I can't leave my door for longer than a minute, and I can't do anything that compromises my breath. I was in so much pain that I had to call my Chef to watch the door while I called my dad. He told me to have Chef bring me a few whole cloves and hold them between my cheek and the tooth. Chef thought I was crazy until he saw that it had actually worked! Now he does it too.
