So I've been having a really bad toothache since last night...I ate some chocolate chips cookies,which I should have known better since I have bad teeth but I'm pregnant so I have certain cravings...Anyway about an hour after eating the cookies I started noticing a minor toothache,which is what I thought it was going to be at first...Oh no it was just getting started,so let's just say a few minutes later I was in so much pain I could barely stand it...Hell I'm still in pain and I'm hoping I can find something that will relieve the pain...This is what I have tried:


Extra Strength Tylenol: Took 3 and didn't work

Salt Water Rinse: Didn't work

Baking Soda Rinse: Didn't Work

Brushing with Sensodyne: use to work but not this time

Peanut Butter: Provided some relief for a few seconds then pain came back

Onion: Didn't work

Sucking on a popsicle: didn't work

Drinking cold water and milk: provided relief for a minute or two then pain returned

Ice Pack: this is the best thing so far...It hasn't made the pain completely go away but its helping more than anything else


I wish I could go to the dentist but most dentist won't take the Medicaid card for pregnant women because they cannot put you under...All they can do is provide a local anesthetic which numbs the area they are working on...It's stupid because I live in Louisiana and there are not many places you can go to...I'm at my wits end I am almost tempted to pull that b!tch out myself

I had the exact same problem while I was pregnant and now that I've had my daughter I'm too stubborn to go and get my root canal like I should.

My pain is so bad it bothers my ear. I take 4 Advil just about every 4 hours and that seems to help. Have your dentist call you in some penicillan (sp) that will kill the infection if its a cavity.

Try to alternate between hot and cold since your using an ice pack, (that will bruise your face) my heating pad worked wonders for me.

Hope this helps!!!

i went to the emergency room for a bad tooth ache after three days of sleep deprivation from the pain.
i have no insurance.
they gave me a couple of injections into the back of my mouth (which didnt really hurt to be honest) then painkillers and antibiotics.
i went home paying nothing to them and got a prescription for:
ibuprofen (for swelling - 600mg/6hr) but i had this at home...
acetaminophen with coding (painkillers, dont go over 4000mg of ace/24hrs)...
and a penicillin knock off (for the infection aka abscess)
costing me 26$ at a 24hr walgreens pharmacy.
the ER bill came a week later and is a grand total of 60$ to be paid in 1month for a discount or call for payment options

if the pain is lasting and too much go to the ER.

FOR ANYONE CURIOUS IF YOU HAVE SWELLING YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE AN INFECTION THAT NEEDS ANTIBIOTICS


$86.00 total for the nightmare to cease isnt too bad. (the tooth is still going to be open to further issues but trust me your worth the money)
