Toothache invariably kicks in late at night because you're lying flat in bed & the blood flow increases to your head. So one small comfort is to prop yourself up as best u can, it takes the "throb" away from the bad tooth.
I had toothache a few weeks back, cracked tooth, since filled, nightmare. Agony like you wouldn't believe. Brushed the area as best I could, followed by some (non alcohol) mouthwash, then followed 30 mins later by a rinse with salty water then a few dabs of clove oil (which is so cheap ... seriously ... £0.50).
Followed up, of course, with a couple of painkillers. Sorted.
In fact, that's what I wanted to ask. Painkillers ... what to use as a painkiller in a survival situation ?
