I have a huge hole in my tooth where a chunk of enamel fell out while I was eating one day. So when it started hurting, I applied suction with my tongue and cheek. It works for several hours if you do it right, but it's a bit hit and miss. FOr the most part, when the pain came back, I swished with a warm salt water rinse. Took advantage of the lack of pain to brush and floss, and rinsed with mouthwash. Held the mouthwash in the side with the affected tooth for as long as I could bear, and the pain vanished for the better part of the day.
