I have an exposed nerve in a tooth and also lots of other teeth that are in desperate need of dental care but I currently have no insurance and are trying to save up the money for a visit to a dentist but in the mean time I've got to find something to help my pain. My pain is so bad that it interferes with my everyday life and I have lots of trouble eating. I'm just constantly in pain. But my grandmother has a lidocaine oral solution she uses for her mouth because of lots of mouth ulcers and I was wondering if I could use this for my mouth pain as well just as a temporary help for my pain until i can get adequate dental care. I've researched the lidocaine solution and have found that it is used as an oral topical anesthetic but I'm just unsure of it on an exposed nerve. So if anyone could be of any help it would so greatly appreciated.
Can I use lidocain viscous oral topical solution as a temporary fix for an exposed nerve in my mouth

This is info for the next person suffering since this was posted 8 yrs ago. Yes you can. Swish around until your pain is gone or bearable. I found more info on google than the bottle. My hubby is in terrible pain and can’t afford dental.
Getting on a antibiotic can buy you time. Go to ER if nothing works. It is not something to mess around with. We have used 2 capsules 2x daily of oregano oil because it is a natural antibiotic. It is very effective for many issues. We also have used colloidal silver. Also a natural antibiotic. Buy online. It is less expensive. Be careful with taking more than 4000mg of acetametaphin in 24 hours. It can be fatal. Ibuprofen for swelling. Other suggestions include warm salt water, rinse, hydrogen peroxide rinse, clove oil, peppermint tea bag placed in area. I have no medical education. It is only intended as a temporary fix. I only speak from things that worked for us.
If the infection and swelling is down it will help the pain quite quickly but you will have to seek medical attention.at some point. They can repair or pull it. You already know this and like us it is just so expensive & hard to find one that accept payment plan. Best wishes. I feel for anyone in this predicament. Hmmm, Do you pay rent or , $1500 for a root canal and crown. It can be $2-$400 to pull 1 tooth.
you might want to read the lidocane tube OR the box. My lidocane says NOT to use internally. another idea.. you can contact the makers of the lidocane OR ask your pharmacist.
Lidocaine viscous oral topical may be used to help alleviate your mouth pain, as long as you are not allergic to any drugs in the "caine" category. Forewarning: Use the least amount as possible and only on the affected areas. The taste is bitter, but it should help numb the pain.
