As strange as it sounds, vanilla extract. I read it somewhere online a while ago. I have a tooth that is in desperate need of a root canal. Being new to the area,I just started with a new dentist who doesn't do them. Therefore referral and wait time. I'm on antibiotic & pain meds now but when it started it was awful. I would have pulled it out myself if I had the nerve! Get a qtip, dip it in the vanilla extract & hold it on the tooth. You may hve to do this several times but the pain does subside. The first night my pain started it actually took the pain away so I could get some sleep. Hope this helps someone.
