    My tooth hurts so bad from an infection

    Ive got some kind of tooth infection and its swollen a little. It hurts so much i cant do anything. I dont really want to go to the dentist cause im sure it will pass.

    Anything i could do to ease the pain or make it go away quicker?

    The quickest way is to go to the dentist, already.

    Yeh I wouldn't put it off. One of my friends had something he thought would pass. After 3 weeks of intense pain we finally convinced him to go to the dentist. A couple hours later he was happy as a lark.

    Your dentist should have an on-call emergency number for established patients.

    The only other option is to do what Tom Hanks on Castaway did....whack it out with an ice skate blade.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition

    If your dentist doesn't have an emergency number, one of my dentists told me to just go to a hospital ER. They have dentists on call.

    Dental pain can be debilitating, and if you have an infection, it's best to get it treated ASAP.

    Oil of oregano. No germ can stand up to it.

    Get a tablespoon of coconut oil if you have it and swish it in your mouth as long as you can stand it up to 20 minutes if you can. Repeat 2 or 3 times a day. If you con't have VCO use sesame oil if you have it or olive in a pinch. This will help pull some of the bacteria out and help with pain. Your mouth will also feel clean as a whistle. Highly recommended for people who are gum disease prone. It saved me $900 of gum treatments. Google oil pulling to learn more.

    Don't mess with a dental infection: see Grok's rule #8 (Avoid trauma)
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
