I returned to this site because I found some helpful info. Toothache pain can usually be helped with a small amount of high proof alcoholic beverage swished around the affected area, the application of oil of clove directly to the tooth, or sometimes with just a mouthful of water. These will kill the acids causing pain or insulate the nerve somewhat in the case of water. Most important: all home relief is temporary- the only real remedy is a dentist. Get to one as soon as possible. Work done to relieve the pain is usually simple and somewhat inexpensive, don't kid yourself- most dentist are happy to make affordable payment arrangements with you. If you are worried about possible expensive work needed like a root canal, consider that the pain might be a warning to you for possible blood poisoning which can be fatal. I suffered for days and sleepless nights like a fool before I went to the dentist in agony that he relieved in about 5 minutes! It's not worth it. Thanks for reading and good luck.
