Had two thirds of a root canal done two days ago - now in really, really bad pain... (an 8 out of 10 level pain) - and using every pain medicine I can lay my hands on .... I've got one tip to share.

Clove Oil, applied on the tip of a finger or via Q-tip to the gums around the distressed tooth really does help numb the pain.

It's an essential oil, and should be available in a nutrition/vitamin store.

You need to reapply after drinking/eating - but it really does help the surface pain, if not the deep inside pain. Good luck, guys!
