Exposed nerve in tooth: I was terrified to try most remedies because the ice water remedy was the only one working for me and I didn’t want to risk that not working anymore. I was applying ice water directly to my tooth every 26 seconds but after 5 hours of this I became freezing and exhausted so at one point I clenched my cheek and realized it stopped the pain. Noticing this I thought I might try to suffocate the nerve with something solid. I rolled up a tiny piece of cotton ball and placed it inside my broken tooth and packed it in with a dental tool (or tweezers/toothpick would work). Stopped the pain on contact and Inwas able to finally sleep. Removed it in the morning and it no longer hurt but I’ve been replacing the cotton every few hours to keep debris out it until I can see the dentist this week.
