I wanted to thank everyone on my home remedies for their stories and advice. My story is typical. Woke up with a toothache that felt as if someone hit me in the mouth with a ball peen hammer. This was a Friday night and I didn't want to call my dentist 'for an emergency visit' and support his 'Porsche fund' so I came online and found this site. I attacked the bear with a 3 part plan. First I used Ibuprofen 2 tabs every 5 to 6 hours. Second I rinsed my mouth with salt water, again every 5 to 6 hours and third I would apply oil of clove on the tooth area making sure I added a small amount of olive oil. The Ibuprofen cut the pain down to about a 2, the salt rinse also added some pain relief and cleaned the tooth site, and the oil of clove with OO help with pain and is a good antiseptic. Well I must say it work wonders, I made it through the weekend and didn't have to support my dentist's need for speed. Until I get his bill. Thanks again.
