ok so I've researched and read lots of sites and tried almost everything besides digging this tooth out with a knife!Once I started researching I found many people have no insurance and limited resources like myself & I would never wish this pain on anyone and hope you find relief soon ... my wisdom teeth finally grew in and I don't have enough room in my mouth and its putting pressure on my entire jaw behind my ear and into an unbearable migraine on one side of my head and my top right wisdom tooth has slowly broken off down to the gum and an exposed nerve with just a small corner of the tooth left poking out next to it so EVERYTHING hurts and nothing takes the pain away completely and needs to been taken care of by the dentist ASAP but if you are like myself without dental insurance and do not have the cash I suggest looking around for a low cost clinic that may work with you or most universities have a dental program that you can go through and have students do your dental for only a fraction of the cost. It's scary at first to think of a STUDENT doing the work but my mother went this route through MUSC in Charleston and they did an amazing job and were assisted by licensed practitioner and instructor. Meanwhile for temporary relief a few things that helped me is Ibuprofen (LOTS) floss in all areas you can stand to even the broken tooth just be careful !! then brush your teeth. I've found Sensodyne repair and protect or COLGATE preoxide and baking soda toothpaste is the BEST! follow up with using ORAJEL antiseptic rinse for mouth sores kills bacteria in mouth and helps sooth throbbing then I top it off with putting ORAJEL directly on the tooth but I use the double medicated tube for extra relief directly on my tooth, nerve, and surrounding gum.

Now before I found this regimen and had access to the store I used any OTC pain killer I had in my cabinet, laid on a heating pad but found esp. with an infected tooth not only does the heat only irritate the inflammation but can also draw the infect outward and increase swelling and pressure so instead use icyhot or vick's vapor rub on the outside of your cheek. you can also make a mouth rinse of warm salt water or 1/2 warm water & 1/2 peroxide ...swish and rinse DO NOT SWALLOW!! also oil of cloves(eugenol) can be found at local health food stores GNC etc. which will help deaden the nerve but careful to apply only to affected area it will burn but it works! or also can use vodka, etc on tooth nerve and gums but wiskey works best for me ;) esp orally lol There are many other home remedies but these are the one's I've personally tried that helped me find some relief without causing more damage

** If you suspect an infection, untreated it could be serious and only lead to more pain so please get seen ASAP. You can even go to the ER and at least get some temp pain killers and antibiotics to help clear and prevent spread of any infection but that is only temporary until a dentist can be seen ...GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!! :)

ECHINACEA WORKS GREAT ON GETTING RID OF ABSCESSES . BREAK OPEN THE CAPSULE,MAKE A PASTE AND APPLY TO INFECTED AREA. INSTEAD OF A PAIN KILLER.TAKE A ANTI-INFLAMMATORY. MY TOOTH DOESN'T HURT,IT'S JUST JAGGED N RIPPING A PART MY TONGUE. I WAS HOPPING THERE WAS SOMETHING I COULD PUT ON IT TO MAKE IT LESS SHARP
