I have bad teeth and I'm poor, so I often just have to 'tough it out' with tooth pain.

My remedy depends on the type of pain:

1. Wisdom tooth comming in and pushing things around or pinching gums. Whole jaw hurts with this one.

What I do: Taking both aspirin and Ibprofin to try and decrease swelling temporarily. I haven't found a solution for this type of tooth ache other than the dentist and a tooth extraction.

2. Infection under a crown. You know it's this one if you press down with a pencil on each of your fillings until one is insanely painful to press down on.
What I do: Best solution is to get your hands on some anti-biotics. On the 3rd day, you'll feel ZERO pain. The infection will come back in a couple weeks with a vengeance, and if you take anti-biotics too long after the pain was gone the first time this new infection will be anti-biotic immune.

Ice cold water held on the tooth until the water warms up will cause a great deal of pain followed by relief for a couple minutes. Being in control of the constant pain for even a few minutes somehow makes you feel better.

I also use the ice-cold water method with calcium tablets held near the tooth by my toung. The calcium dissolves and creates a kind of paste that will trick your brain into thinking you are repairing the tooth. Tricking your brain is good.

Finally, for this type of pain I will go for a walk. Yeah, just walk it off. I tell myself that by the time I get back, the pain will be decreased. Doing things to decrease the pain tricks your brain into giving you a nice bit of endorphins and actually does decrease the pain. Keep reminding yourself the pain is temporary, or at least that the current level of it is temporary.

if you have a library card go get the book Cure Tooth Decay by ramel negal, on your way home drop in at the butchers and get some bones (bio or organic if poss -they may even be free), take them home and boil them up to make bone broth - food for teeth. Read book and eat your way to healthy teeth. bon courage.
