Yeah it is
Fuck root canals
I've been needing some major dental work for a couple years now.
Every month or so, I have a toothache come on that lasts a couple days and makes life hell.
I earned mine through not flossing, not through fighting commies, though.
Use apple cider vinegar matt
It takes the pain away immediately
Apple cider vinegar, salt water, and ibuprofen like M&Ms.
It's gotta have the mother in it to work
lol I would put goody powders on my tooth when it hurt like fuck
Ever done that?
Never tried that.
I bother with the anbesol to hold me over until the ibuprofen can kick in.
Yeah, that and stuff for teething babies, works.
I had that throbbing pain that you would get after you wake up and your mouth would be dry
Great way to stick with a diet.
That stuff stopped working for me
I used rx lidocaine for cuts on my teeth when it got real bad
Most painful injury I've had as someone who has been in a fair few fights as well as mma is still a really bad sore throat
I suppose illness rather
But it was unbearable. Worse than any blow to my head or body. Never had a broken bone or sprain so who knows though
Damn. Never had one that bad
It was absurd and lasted 2 weeks
Nothing could take my mind off it either
It went away on its own. I think you gotta get antibiotics for strwp
Little motivational inspiration
The trick with antibiotics is fish antibiotics at the fish supply shop.
Do try to maintain the same regimen a doctor would prescribe so you're not making shit worse with resistant bacteria.
Extraction is the cure for that shit. I had 2 teeth abscess on me when I was "away" & all they did was give me antibiotics, ibuprofen 800. Once the swelling went down bc the abscess popped I had them yank them. Needless to say the "dentist" in the feds doesn't administer pain reliever of any kind beyond ibuprofen... probably the worst pain I ever had to go through. You know what they say- what doesn't kill you...
I've been through some pretty acute pain, and I've been close enough to painkiller addiction that I'll take ibuprofen if my leg's getting ripped off.
I had a buddy take his own tooth with a Leatherman. That was impressive, I thought about him while I was suffering.
That is impressive
Came out in pieces too, so it wasn't 1 clean break. Fairly brutal really, but once I had an abscess tooth I finally understood, you just want the damn thing out of your head
I've got one tooth that's broken off at the jaw... the root is still there
