Clove oils and bc powders are the best. You can buy them over the counter. I use a brand called goody's. I also suck on ice when it gets so bad nothing works, cause I go through this very often. All my teeth are bad, and damaged at the roots.

You can try Krys's ideas, but otherwise there isn't a lot anyone can suggest, since we don't know the specifics of what NSAIDs you've been taking, and how much of them you've taken. Orajel is usually good, but it doesn't tend to last long, since your saliva tends to wash it away very quickly.

The ice might not be a good idea for everyone, since some are sensitive to cold on their teeth. I know when I had mine, if I'd have tried ice for an ache, it would have cause major pain. I even avoided cold foods and drinks, for years, because of my dental issues. My teeth were bad due to genetics, I have dentures, now, and am much happier, plus I no longer have to deal with the pain. While keeping your natural teeth is always best, it isn't always possible, or practical.

Shon, have you tried calling your dentist? They may be able to suggest something, or prescribe something to help with the pain, until your appointment.
