What is a good way to cure a toothache at home, without going to the dentist, due to money problems?
You can't: You can't "fix" what's broken. There's no over-the-counter or do-it-yourself kit. If you have a toothache, you have a damaged tooth. It takes 8-10 years of training after high school to learn how to resolve the problem. Call the dentist. Ask if they have payment plans available. There's no pill, no ointment, no cream, that will fix your problem, and the longer you wait the worse it gets. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't delay - see your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Fix the tooth: To do that you will need to call a dentist. There are no home remedies or cures for rotten teeth. No magic pills or rinses or mouthwashes. Toothaches need to be treated locally by a dentist, someone who has years of experience treating these conditions. The sooner you call the sooner you will feel better. Please don't delay, the pain may soon be unbearable. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

I've even seen people whole will take a clove and stick it in the cavity (eugenol is a sedative to the tooth). Doesn't work to well. Do yourself a favor and see the dentist before the weekend. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
