    Toothache on the road??

    Just added a new must take item to the travel pills.



    happiness is http://orajel.ca/products/adult-oral...xoCnKUQAvD_BwE

    Likely have an abcess and have an appointment Monday but pain pills and anti-biotics were not knocking it back,

    It's still tender but Orajel knocked the discomfort right back to barely noticeable. Can't eat on that side but just about zero pain and discomfort instantly.
    I''d be a lot safer getting home from a trip without heavy painkillers....this stuff works and right fast.

    Oil of cloves contains eugenol which is the basis of an anaesthetic your dentist uses. Put it on some cotton wool and put that next to the sore tooth and it works pretty well. I’m sure the oragel does too. I also have a small pot of temporary filling material that I take on vacation in case of emergencies. That works very well for a week or so.

    I tried for oil of clove but not available at Shoppers apparently.

    Personally, I would just swerve and avoid the toothache on the road. I didn't know you could easily buy temporary filling material without being a dentist. Hopefully, it doesn't happen to you often.
    Ignorance is curable, Apathy not so much, but I don't care, I'll try anyway.

    Everyone likes to think that they may be the smartest person in the room, but sometimes that only occurs when we're alone!

    It's just for emergencies. I had a really deep filling once that kept dislodging every now and then. So I took the filling material with me until the thing was fixed properly. It’s not metal, it’s some kind of putty that hardens over time.

    DIY fillings, awesome

    tried that once with a solder gun
    sucks when your aim is off and get a drop of molten tin on your tongue

    Next time try lead solder - lower melting point, smaller burns.

    excellent idea
    I hear the early stages of lead poisoning are a riot
    end stage not so much

    Just go to the dentist in Mexico like I did.

    you can get oil of clove at bulk barn. It’s nasty stuff though.
