I’m in so much pain, but I don’t know what to do!?

I have a broken molar in my mouth, and it’s giving me some really massive toothaches. It used to just come and go, but now it’s been going on for 2 days. I’ve tried putting Orajel on the gums surrounding the tooth, and that worked for a little while, but now it has no effect. I would normally go in for an emergency visit to the dentist, but I’m not at home, where my insurance covers me. Anyone have some advice on how to dull the pain down for 24 hours? Then I get to go see a local dentist 🙂

[EDIT] Would putting the benzocaine directly into the exposed nerve have any effect? I took some ibuprofen, but no effect. Ice is almost done getting frozen, too.
