Can't get in to see my dentist until Monday, but I am in so much pain I can't stand it. Please give your advice..it's greatly appreciated!
Having worked for a dentist for 15 years, I would recommend cold water. Hold it in your mouth against the tooth that is aching. Change it out each time the tooth begins aching again. The nerve inside the tooth is what is causing the pain, heat causes it to flare up more. Take an ibuprofen, and use the cold water technique until the tooth settles down. Don't miss your dental appointment just because the pain goes away. It will flare up again, soon.
