Can't see my dentist for this toothache until the 26th! The only thing helping is beer! Never been to the dentist with a hangover before! Mine, not his!

    If the tooth is infected what has always worked for me is to cut a clove of raw garlic in half and press the freshly sliced inside portion of the one of the clove halves against the gums at the base of the infected tooth and hold it there for at least 2 minutes. It will burn like a sonuvabitch but it will fight the infection and reduce the pain and swelling. It won't cure the infection but it will keep it under control until you can get to a dentist.

    Buy some fish antibiotics, they are the same as long as they are manufactured in the US.

    Thanks doctors! Did the ora-jel also some stuff that has clove oil, used it once, works a bit. But got some temporary filling stuff that's really helping. The top of the tooth or old filling is gone and you can see the little red center where the nerve is probably at. Keeping it sealed off as much as I can! Working great so far!
