Toothaches can be helped by needle acupuncture. If one should get one in the middle of the night it certainly worth trying pressure acupuncture if asprine does not work. Wrist-hand point 5 fig. 69 is helpful

Fig. 69
Wrist-hand point 5
Large intestine
Located by closing the thumb and forefinger together and noticing frequently effective by itself. It should be primarily tried on the toothache side, but if it does not work, the other side can be used also.

The little mound that forms at their junctions on the back of the hand. The point lies under the peak of the little mound. It can also be found by bending the thumb of the other hand over the web between the thumb and the index finger as shown also figs. 20,63,76,82,and 92.

Face point 8 fig. 70 and face point 5 fig. 71 are other points used, but unfortunately these might be quite tender. The non-affected side can be tried, but the use of both sides is not more effective, as rule, than the involved side.

Face point 8
Stomach 6
Located on each side of the face just above the point that the angle of the jaw makes.

However, wrist-hand point 5 by itself, unilaterally or bilaterally, is very effective. Hard pressure be used. Of course, one should see a dentist as soon as possible to get the condition corrected.

Face point 5
Gall bladder 2
Located on each side of the face by opening the mouth wide and feeling the depression formed in front of the ears at the top of the ear lobe level. Pressure should be applied with mouth closed. See also fig 101.
