I have a cavity in one of my molars on my upper right side . It has been bothering me for a little while now and I've gotten to the point where pain has won . A few days ago I had this episode happen , I kept researching home remedies without success until I decided to try my own ( I saw them on this website after) . The hot water with salt trick works for about thirty seconds , it softens the pain but it does come back . The ice pack trick on cheek works but it's not at immediate effect. The Walgreens brand of mouthwash(yellow) minimizes the pain the best ! You will get tired of rinsing your mouth but it makes it tolerable. Hot shower helps a lot ! . The best for the pain has to be amoxicillin . Its about a 36 hr wait from the time you can hold the pain till the point that you feel perfect :). Smoking a cigarette also helps .... It really does. I also reccomend this little teeth cleaning kit which brings a pick that you can use to clean the cavity (food causes the most pain) . After a couple of days on amoxicillin , go buy the dentex cavity filler mix at Walgreens and seal that cavity and this can help you live pain free while you see the dentist .
