This tooth ache's messing with my workout:(!!

Nothing like a chipped molar to mess with my head, literally!! Really want to get some cardio in for the day, can't remember the last day I skipped it....

However, my tooth is giving me such a bad headache!!! Can't get into my dentist until tomorrow morning:( Any ideas on how to get rid of this pain? Ibuprofen's not cutting it!

Really want to walk but I'm in to much pain right now:(

Thanks in advance")!!

Ouch Sammy, poor you! :(

The problem you've got is that the root's exposed. As a temporary measure, try putting on some bonjela (it'll sting, sorry), then plug the gap with some well chewed gum.

Hope that helps :)

Fresh minced ginger in tea, about 1 heaped teaspoon, try to drink it all, ginger is great for pain, fast acting too

I thought putting cotton wool over tooth with whisky does the trick.

Maybe try warm salt water or blue listerine can help with pain in the tooth

Hi Sammygirl, how's your tooth? Did any of the remedies work? I hope your dentist has sorted it for you now and that you're pain free :)
