Hopesplace, I am sorry to hear that you, like many others, have been experiencing the same problem as I have, bad teeth. I am on disability so I cannot afford to pay for dental care and Medicare doesn't cover it. Most of my teeth are broken off at the gum line so I have deep holes, exposed nerves, and continuous abscesses, mostly due to an abusive husband from which I am now divorced.I too have gone to the clinic in severe pain, to be told that they have all the patients they will see for the day or that I can sit and wait til the end of the day (some 6 hours) on the chance that someone will see me. Over the years, I have learned one trick that tends to help with an abscess, Benadryl. It helps by drying the infection. Unfortunately it does nothing to save the tooth but when in severe pain it has helped me without fail.
