Hey guys! Just wanted to add my 2 cents. After spending all day in excruciating pain, I found this website. I read through and saw all of the remedies, and I tried most. I tried gargling vanilla extract - didn't work. I tried ice cold water - it worked for literally 3 seconds and the pain came back worse than ever. I got no sleep at all, which was the worst part, because I LOVE my sleep. So, after being curled in a fetal position, I finally decided to go to the dentist first thing this morning. This was no easy decision, because I am a self-employed web designer with no insurance and I knew that going to the dentist was going to be quite expensive. I ended up going and they took x-rays and it was discovered that my wisdom tooth is coming in, but it was broken and infected - YUCK! So, no amount of remedies would have helped me out in that situation. The whole left side of my face and neck was swollen and the pain was unbearable. The dentist prescribed antibiotics, pain meds, and steroids to reduce the swelling. I'm on my second dose for the day and I must say - I feel so much better! The best part is that I explained my situation to the dentist and he saw me at a reduced cost. I said all of that to say, if anyone out there is in that type of pain, it can't hurt to at least try to talk to your dentist and see what they can do for you - it worked for me.
