Saturday night was probably the worst night of my life. My tooth ache came on about 9:00 p.m. and kept me up all night. The only time I got any relief was when I was walking around. I came on this site to find out what I could possibly do to get some relief, but to no avail. I tried everything from warm salt water, alcohol, bread, etc. Yes, these remedies did work for a very short period of time (approximately 10 to 15 minutes). After being up all night and wanting to just die from the pain, I finally went to CVS at 8:00 a.m. and I bought Sensodyne tooth paste and Red Cross tooth ache medicine. Both of these products together are under $15.00. This is the only thing that worked for me. I first brushed by teeth with the Sensodyne (paying close attention to the tooth with the cavity), I then applied the Red Cross tooth ache medicine right into my cavity (with one of the little cotton balls it comes with). Within five (5) minutes, my tooth ache pain went from a 10 to a 2, but I still wanted the pain gone. So, I applied a finger full of Sensodyne toothpaste directly to my cavity, and what do you know, I was pain free for the rest of the day. (I am not kidding and I don't joke about pain). I followed the steps again (with the exception of the Sensodyne on my cavity) before bed, even though I still had no pain, and I finally got a great nights sleep. However, I did leave the little cotton ball from the Red Cross tooth ache medicine in the cavity all night, as I was not taking any chances of the pain returning in the middle of the night), So, if you are in extreme pain, find a 24 hour Walgreens or CVS and pick these items up. You will be asleep within 30 minutes after following these steps. TRUST ME. I hope you all get the relief that you deserve. I cannot think of anything more painful than a tooth ache. Good luck!!!
