I have had intense tooth ache problems for a couple of months now - no dental insurance. I have tried Advil, Aleve, Tylenol, aspirin, and even some strong prescription pain relievers that did very little - only dulled the pain. I also tried my WaterPic, hydrogen peroxide and Orajel with no success. Purely by accident, I found that by swishing about 1 tsp of Robitussin DM -yes cough medicine -(I actually use WalMart's Equate brand 'Tussin DM' - much cheaper)in the area causing the pain, it diminishes the pain immediately, and the pain is gone within a couple more minutes. I do not know how or why it works but it does. The relief lasts 2 to 3+ hours. It is not a long-term solution but it will at least get you to a point where you are able to function.
