I had found the old site first and followed what seemed to help others. This is what finally worked for me after being in pain all night and unable to sleep.
I took 4, 200 mg. of Ibuprofen, which I know is a prescription dosage. I brushed my teeth thoroughly, and put maximum strength Orajel on some dental floss. I then flossed around the tooth - in my case the problem was with my second to last molar on the bottom left. I then took a cotton swab and dipped it into hydrogen peroxide and swabbed it all around the tooth, full strength. After a couple of minutes, I rinsed with mouthwash. I think mine is Crest Complete. I then heated a Green Tea bag in a small amount of water for about 45 seconds. I squeezed out the excess water and used it as a poultice between my tooth and gum. I kept it there for a few minutes, until it got cold. I then took a swab and dipped it in Orajel and swabbed that around the tooth. After I did everything, I finally got relief.
I went to Walmart and bought some Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief toothpaste so that I could brush and not have it be so sensitive, but it is supposed to repair enamel. I haven't used it before, but thought it was worth a try.
I also bought 200 mg. Ibuprofen, and their Equate Nighttime Sleep Aid tablets, because I have been up all night. I got more Orajel, because I used up what I had. So for the 4 items I bought, I spent just under $20. I am finally free of pain, and since I am dentist phobic, hopefully this will keep working. Good luck to YOU if you are suffering!! There is nothing worse than a toothache.
