I have a tooth with nerve pain. No damage to the tooth, just hurting for no apparent reason. I've had another tooth several years ago with the same pain and it turns out the nerve was dying. Reading about covering the tooth with dental wax gave me an idea. I chewed two pieces of sugarless gum and used my tongue to press it over the hurt tooth and surrounding teeth. It's working out well! Clearly not a permanent fix but since its the Christmas holiday weekend, I'm pretty much sans dentist until well after the new year. Plus I'd keep gum on my tooth forever to keep that horrible pain away.
