I just got some dental work done, and it was painful. There is no bleeding, but there is swelling and throbbing. What should I do to alleviate the pain?

Swish with salt water and take an Advil.

Gently swish with warm salt water every 15 minutes. This is an amazing help and relieves a lot of the pain and discomfort.

Just out of curiosity, what type of work did you have done?

Using toys won't really make you heal faster but you really won't care about the pain for a while!!

Sleeping is the only way I get through being sick or not feeling well!

Ibuprofen and warm salt water rinses. Depending on the type of work I might have other suggestions.

Aw, love all these options. But sleeping it off is good.

Rest is the best way to recover.

Capture a unicorn and take a nap on its back . When you wake up, you'll be someplace magical!

That's what I want anyway..

I would say call the dentist's office and ask what they recommend but I suspect they will say an analgesic and a nap.

napping always makes me feel better

Other than that, a long bath or shower! There's something about being clean that makes me feel better in general.

I ALWAYS take a nap after the dentist and I always feel better once I finally wake up (which is normally hours later lol)

Take a nap but I would also say suck on ice chunks or popsicles... I wouldn't do ice cream because it creates phlegm. Ice packs on the cheeks will also feel good

Other than the unicorn, these were all serious ideas that I had about how to heal! As it turned out, even though it wasn't a popular suggestion, I *did* end up using toys later on, and it was EXACTLY as Rory said - it didn't REMOVE my pain, but it sure distracted me for a few minutes! I love EF!

Incidentally, I feel much better today after a good sleep. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions!

I lived on pain medicine and ice packs when I had my wisdom teeth yanked out.
