    Posted: Feb/18/2018 at 11:14pm
Hi, I am suffering from a tooth pain. This pain is due to a decayed tooth in my upper jaw. It often causes pain. Usually, I try some oral gels and painkillers to get a relief from the pain and it will be okay within two days. Two days before, the pain started again. I have tried the same old remedies. But I am not getting any relief from the pain. My cheeks became reddish and swollen. I can't eat anything. Also, I am experiencing problems while talking. Really fed up with the pain. I am going to consult a dental care services near High Park. Actually, I am busy with my office works and I don't get any more leaves for this. If I want to undergo any tooth extraction, is it possible for me to go to the office on the next day itself? Will it take so much of time? Are there any other treatments available? Help me with your valuable replies.

Hi Helen,

Sorry to hear of your dental problems, tooth pain is awful. The only thing I can suggest besides the dentist, is a drop of clove oil on the tooth. Tastes bad, but it can help some people with tooth pain. However antibiotics for the infection that’s causing swelling, and extraction, are the only way to solve the problem and keep it from continuing to cause you pain. I’ve gone to work the day after having an extraction. Good luck.

Hopefully they can drill out and excavate the decayed part and apply either fillings or a crown on top.  There isn't much that can be done short of seeing a dentist.  Make a late afternoon appointment and that way you will only be out an hour or two of work.

Don’t put off seeking dental help right away. This sounds infected and if so, needs antibiotics and treatment—-possibly extraction. If there are no complications you should be able to return to work the next day, but until you’ve gotten diagnosed you won’t know.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Please, get to the dentist asap!! Don't wait, it may mean preventing root canal, or even saving your tooth! (I've been there)

If your tooth hurts, chances are there is a cavity that is letting food and bacteria into it. If it is not too late, you many be able to have that cavity drilled, cleaned and filled preventing any more wicket stuff getting in there. You may need to get started on a prescribed antibiotic very quickly.

For quick temporary relief, for me ,there is nothing better than clove oil. I prefer Young Living Essential Oils brand, and I find mine in Amazon. I suave the sore area with q tip dipped in the oil. It burns, but it helps the pain almost immediately. Personal experience.

Chewing the whole clove and pushing the mush into the sore area por awhile is also very helpful. Next to that there is Ambasol. You can also try some OTC NSAID like Ibuprofen, to help the inflammation.

You can also gargle with salt, warm water. Brush, floss. But don't delay going to the dentist.

Hi friends, 
Now I am okay. I had undergone a tooth extraction. Fortunately, I got emergency leave for two days. I am happy with your replies. I am sure that these information will be useful for me in future. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.Smile

Iam new here. I have phantom tooth pain. All my teeth have hurt and pained for nine months now. On meds. Gabapentine, and Nortryptiline. Doesn't take the pain away completely. Cause of this condition is unknown. No cure for it.I have had all the tests!! Nothing found. Does anyone have anything like this? Could use some insight.

Janice—-

Has anyone mentioned trigemenal neuralgia? Just a thought.

I’m wondering how much Gabapentin you are on? If it’s helping, even at a low dose, then it may point to a nerve type condition.
