With exposed nerve pain, anything will help when u dig the hole or cover iT. What is hurting is the air hitting the nerve. Walgreens has a oral kit. Works great.
Try this at YOUR OWN RISK grab salt water very salty heat it up and take a golp hold it where the pain is then right away spit it out and do the same with very cold water it will hurt you will feel a crack or pop your tooth will crack killing the nurve and instant relief
So my tooth broke by chewing bubble gum it was one of my back molars and now there is an exposed nerve hurts when cold and hot hits it like a stabbing pain does not feel good at all, i'm guessing the tooth was already decaying and i did not realize it,So I have to wait few months to see my dentist so what i have been doing to ease the pain is take crest toothpaste it's called mint chocolate trek and putting it inside the hole of my tooth then i take a small piece of cotton and just stick it in on top so the toothpaste stays in there i know it's kinda gross to taste the toothpaste but it is worth it because the pain is unbearable it might work with other toothpastes but i only had the crest mint chocolate trek one,also i usually change it after i eat a meal so the piece of cotton doesn't get all gross and it has been working good so far,I thought i would share it maybe it could help someone else who has the same problem
I chipped one of my back teeth recently, and have put off going to the dentist because of the money it will cost. Obviously I am getting pains from the exposed nerve on that tooth, I tried sucking on cloves till they go soft then biting down on them that helps to numb it. I took some ibuprofen too, then I put half a teaspoon of crushed garlic in a tissue and rolled it in a ball then put it on the sore tooth, I recommend keeping it there for a bit as it brought me instantly relief.
I have a broken molar with the nerve exposed. Around 5:30 this morning, intense pain woke me up. I took 3 ibuprofen 800mg, which did nothing. I was reading on this site and I found the post about heating up the baking soda. I tried that and used a little bit of warm water to make a paste. I packed the whole with the paste and covered it with a cotton ball and INSTANT RELIEF!! You know like cartoons where it's storming like crazy then all of a sudden it stops with rainbows and unicorns and birds chirping and shit? That's how my life was when I felt the relief. Pain went from a 10 to nothing immediately. May be worth a try to someone and I pray it helps.
'Orabase by Colgate is the best thing I have tried for exposed nerve pain. My uncle introduced it to me, and it really works. I use it now as well.' It is found in the aisle where they sell canker sore paste. I wouldn't know what to do without it. Truly a life saver.
Get some Benadryl tablets or capsules, crush them up or empty the powder out, then dab your finger or a q-tip with water into the powder and put on the painful tooth or pack into hole in tooth, will taste horrible do not swallow or rinse, just try to hold it there as best as you can, use all the powder from 1-2 tablets, you will drool a bit and go numb, but half the time if the nerve is exposed it will kill that nerve and no more pain. this worked for me on the bottom tooth I had trouble with, the top teeth are a bit harder to do you have to almost tilt your head down so it can sit on top the tooth for a while. try to leave sit on tooth for about 10-15 minutes then you can rinse.
So I am a truck driver and have no meds available no anything available and the worst toothache I have ever experienced. Enough so I was tempted to call carve my tooth out with my pocket knife. I looked up accucpressure points for tooth pain and INSTANT relief. I pressed first on the meaty part of my hand between the thumb and fore finger then I pinched my cheeks just below my eyes...that one done the trick. Its free and it's worth a shot. I couldn't believe how well it worked.
I just lost a filling with a hole in the tooth and the root is gone, no pain yet, pretty scared its friday dentist not open until monday, feel my face swelling up Imma try some warm salt water later, and a pain killer. But this is very scary and I brushed my teeth, flossed and used ACT oral rinse, hopefully all will be okay. I wish there was something to plug this hole in the tooth. Its late at night and beginning of a long weekend though! Take care of your teeth
I want to thank you all for the remedies... I also have an exposed nerve and have been up the last 2hrs in severe pain. After pain pills, orajel, even whiskey. I read about the warm salt water I will be able to sleep now until my dentist appointment in the morning. Thank You sooooooooo much!!!!!
