What can I do to ease tooth pain until I can go to dentist in a few days?  Pills barely work, extremely sensitive to hot and cold and sweets

A couple of simple ways are to get orthodontic wax (sold at most drug stores, ask for braces wax, very cheap) and smush a small ball into the area of missing tooth to provide a thermal cover. If that does not work, get a athletic mouth guard and cover the tooth along with the rest of the arch. While not the prettiest, it may work. ...Read more
