Has anyone had to deal with a severe toothache while on the road away from home? I’ve got a ring dinger of one and need to get it fixed before I can get to my regular dentist.

And remember, be true to your teeth and they will never be false to you.

No response. Not going to jinx myself.

Hope you get that resolved ASAP.

PackRat, where are you right now? Maybe we can meet up and your can pull the tooth for me. I’m sure you have the right tool for the job.

I had an upper molar, right in front of the wisdom tooth, that was really bad. There was a large hole in it along the gum line. Very painful at times. Pain would last a few days then disappear. Then come back a week or so later.

I had it looked at on home time and was scheduled to have it pulled the day before I was due back to work. Unfortunately my appointment was never entered into the system. I showed up to have the tooth pulled and they said they couldn't do it. I had to wait another month to finally get it taken care of.

I hope you have better luck.

PackRat, where are you right now?

I'm parked in Clive, Iowa for another half hour. Final is in Vandalia, OH10 at a Procter & Gamble DC whenever I arrive.

I had a tooth problem last year, had a wisdom tooth pushing on the one next to it. Took like 2 weeks to get an appointment to pull it, I was taking like 3 Ibuprofen every 3 hours to kill the pain. Ended up taking last 3 days before surgery off because it so bad I couldn't safely drive anymore.
