What is a good way to cure a toothache at home, without going to the dentist, due to money problems?

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 more

What is a way to cure toothache?

What is a way to cure toothache?

No, cure - treatment: You can't cure a toothache, you can only treat the source. Often, the source of pain is decay, which can infect the nerve in a tooth. The pain is from the dying nerve and the buildup of pressure in tooth or surrounding bone. Root canal therapy eliminates the pain by removing the infected nerve (and allowing you to keep your tooth). Don't delay - see your dentist. ...Read more

Toothache pain...Any cures or home remedies?

Toothache pain...Any cures or home remedies?

Not a great answer: I'll be honest and say that any relief you get will be temporary. You need to get to the dentists asap. Anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen will help temporarily. 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 more
