I've done em all. Thing about it is, they are just temporary fixes and eventually the method you find for your quick fix won't cut it any longer and youll have to switch it up. So a quick run down of things that have worked for me. But before I get to that brush your teeth, and yes even that tooth that is broke or has a cavity in it that has ate through nearly all of your tooth. It's going to hurt like no other but 9 times out of 10 the real reason your tooth is hurting is because you have some tiny microscopic particle hitting that nerve which is causing the pain. It sucks but if you can't get rid of what's irritating the exsposed nerve your not going to win (and yes its possible to have an exsposed nerve and not be in pain all the time you just need to keep it clean) alright then now that you've done that and nearly passed out from the pain, the list (some if not all of these are on this list already but these have worked for me)
GARLIC- Any type of garlic clove, paste, I've even used powder.
Vanilla extract- just don't over do it with this technique or you'll burn up your gums
Vodka or everclear- feel free to go ahead and get drunk while your at it.
Mouthwash- not as fun as vodka
Advil liquid gel caps- break open and put on nerve
Warm salt water- swish as hard as you can and until your jaw feels like it's gonna fall off. Spit and repeat at least one more time
Vicks vapor rub- Rub some on your face on the side the pain is on. If your dumb enough to actually put it on the tooth itself please let me know how that works out for you.
Ice- This one's weird but it has worked for me and like the Vicks it's not meant for the tooth itself. Hold a piece of ice between your thumb and your index finger on the opposite side of your painful tooth. Takes a sec but it can oddly kill the pain.
Antibiotics- Not so much of a quick fix but if your tooth is in constant pain there is a good chance it's infected and nothing is going to take the pain away for good without them. (Make sure to take the whole prescription as advised from your doctor or your buddys doctor if your on a budget)
Clove oil- Works pretty good but who has clove oil laying around
Sugar free gum- chew it up an fill that hole. If you don't use sugar free your gonna have a bad time.
Superglue- again cover that bad boy up.
Well I'm done, there's plenty more out there too these are just my go 2s. Hopefully at least one works for you. Keep them teeth clean son!
