  • Owwwwwww My Toooooooth!!!!!!

    I broke a tooth last Sunday, which was fine as wasn't painful at all, phoned the dentist on MOnday and earliest they could fit me in was Tuesday week (21st I think!). But typical overnight last night it started to hurt, and now is soooooooo painful I can't stand it. Dentist is closed until Monday, could phone the emergency line but am sure I would end up being charged a fortune so have left a message for my dentists to phone me Monday morning and hopefully get in sooner. But am going out of my mind with the pain, have constantly rinsed it with Oraldene, cleaned my teeth, eaten painkillers like they are sweets and am now putting a cool cotton wall ball soaked in clove water on it which is easing it a little, but not much!! Anybody else have any other remedies worth trying??

    There are some NHS dentist drop in centres but I'm not sure if there are any near you - here's the url for NHS direct as they might be able to give you details of these. www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk If they haven't got the details on the site then try the phone number 0845 4647 - staffed by very helpful nurses who should be able to point you in the right direction.

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

      The phone number is

      It doesn't say in the description that it does dental services but neither does the one in Rochdale and I know that that one does. It's open 9 til 5 on weekends.

        Ah bless Sommerwood. Can't suggest anything other than painkillers - I sometimes take Feminax because it has codeine in it and codeine knocks me out, but I know it has no effect on some people. The only other obvious one is Nurofen because Ibroprofen is an anti-inflammatory.

        Just a note of caution - all the NHS emergency drop-in centre does near me is EXTRACTIONS That's the only way the treat emergenices.

          Aww poor you.
          Try some topical relief with soluble aspirin and spit out. Doesn't last for long though.
          I trained as a Reflexologist and Toes and tips of fingers would relate to the teeth. Though please don't try this stimulation if you have diabetes.

            When my son was teething I bought some sachets of homeopathic powder to reduce the inflamation .... can't for the life of me remember what it was called, but I used to buy it in Sainsbury's

                Thanks everyone, and thanks so much Swirly for taking the touble to find that info out for me, I phoned them yesterday afternoon but they don't do dental. Yesterday it was just agony, I couldn't do a thing to ease the pain, am sure I must have overdosed on painkillers, took every type imaginable!!! Then took a large glass of wine and strangely enough I stopped caring!!!!!!

                This morning it is a lot easier than it was yesterday, still niggly but so far, touch wood, not as bad. I did buy some baby teething gel (!) in the end too and that actually seems to be helping, quite tasty too!!!

                Will be onto my dentist first thing tomorrow to see what they can do as I am going to the V Festival next weekend and really don't want to be suffering for that!

                  You can combine paracetamol (or cocodomol) and ibuprofen together - I used to take cocodomol during the day and nurofen at night for by back. That way you can get 24 hours of pain medication, without overdosing.

                  Ring the dentist tomorrow and see if they can fit you in for an emergency - some will.

                    When I was young my mum and dad used to soak a cotton wool ball in whiskey and made me bite on it - don't know if it worked or not - probably got too drunk - no only kidding I think the alcohol worked as an antiseptic or something.

                    Cheers.

                      And so the pain continues ......

                      Had my 'emergency' appointment at the dentist Friday just gone, he said it can be saved and did a temporary filling as I had my other appointment yesterday.

                      Anyway, over the weekend it started to niggle again, Monday night it was very painful again but Tuesday morning had calmed down. Went to the dentist like a big brave girl expecting the temporary filling to be removed and a proper one put in, only for her to ask 'Does this hurt?' and whack my poorly tooth with a big metal hammer thing which resulted in me leaping out of the seat and flying through the roof and up into outer space!!! (May be a slight exaggeration there .... but the answer was 'Yes it friggin well does hurt') and from then on the pain has just got worse and worse if thats possible.

                      She took pleasure in telling me I had an abscess and gave me a double dose of anti b's to take before I have to go back in two weeks for root canal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      Is so painful now I cannot close my teeth together or anything, I went to the chemist and asked for the strongest painkiller they could legally sell me which are great but they knock me right out. So have just got home from work and am about to take a couple and disappear under my duvet for the rest of the day!! Hopefully the anti b's will start kicking in within the next day. Oh I just hate teeth, and dentists, and dentists nasty metal hammer things!!!!!!! Can't wait until I am old and can have them all removed and then just scare children as I let my false ones slip out!!!!

                        Oooo Jo you have my sympathy I'm sat here with a possible tooth abcsess, my face is loverly and puffy but as I have a regular check-up booked in 2 weeks I'm hoping to hold on til then.

                        Never had any probs with my teeth before but this year I've had a root canel and 2 wisdoms pulled and now a possible abcsess When i was in agony with the tooth that was root canelled I got an emergency dental appointment and had to pay £15 just for her to glance at it, tell me to book in for the proceedure and to take painkillers. Earliest appointment I could get was 3 weeks time!!! Couldn't cope with the pain so went to my doctors who prescribed me some loverly painkillers that actually worked plus some antibiotics as she suspected it was infected. You can see why I'm not bothering to book an emergency appointment this time

                        Hope the pain goes soon

                              Coproxamol are good.

                              Take some sleeping tablets as well, if you can - or an antihistamine that causes drowsiness such as phenergan.

                              That's what I had with my abscess.
