Toothache

So, apparently something in my mouth is infected (whether it's the tooth or the gum, I don't know); it's painful and swollen up.

I'm currently on antibiotics and painkillers, and I've got an appointment with the dentist for next week (they've got to wait until the swelling goes down and the infection is under control before they can do anything).

Hopefully this is something that won't require a lot of pain and suffering to take care of.

Stupid teeth. :(

Ow!

I don't have an advice on making it not-hurt other than swishing diluted hydrogen peroxide seems to help keep pain down sometimes.
(I forget the proportion - probably somewhere between half and two thirds water. It feels *weird* in the mouth, and it isn't an immediate reduction, but it's helpful.)

I just hope it clears up quickly, and whatever it is is a simple fix.
*hugs*

I second the diluted hydrogen peroxide suggestion. I usually use a 1:1 mix, but a 2:1 mix is fine too (that is 2 parts water, 1 part hydrogen peroxide).

take care! I hope the doctors/dentists figure out what is wrong with you. Feel better and I hope you get some rest this weekend. I'm assuming you are not going to come over to K & P's in which case, you will be missed.
