Apply the vaseline twice a day to the affected area and use the saline at least four times a day. ...Read more

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

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
