Last week the dentist did some exploratory root canal work and the tooth/gum has been getting rapidly more painful (and swollen). In desperation (3am), I found this website - what a relief! For me, the following worked:

1. Ibubrofen (it is an anti-inflammatory, but takes a while for the effect to be noticed).
2. A small sip of brandy, held in the mouth against the painful area.
3. 3 cloves, crushed in a drop of water and then applied to the sore area (this gives a burning sensation, but stick with it!).

Within 10-15 minutes, the pain was reduced to tolerable soreness and AT LAST I could sleep. Now, 8 hours later, still pain free (although still very tender). This should keep me going until early next week, when I have the follow-up appointment.

Hope it helps someone out there, toothache is the worst.....
