> Could chewing the nicotine gum make a cracked tooth go off like a bomb in my jaw. I'm out of town and my dentist left for Pittsburgh this p.m. Neither the hydrocodone or the vicoprofen is helping much on the pain. So I've got Friday to Monday at 11 to suffer.

ANYTHING, let alone nicotine gum, can make a cracked tooth go crazy.
I sympathize, I've been there. Probably you just made the crack a tiny
bit bigger and you've got air on a nerve or something charming. Or an
infection.
Were I in your shoes, I might find a dentist now [thru the ER of the best
hospital you can find]. It's possible to put a metal cap on a cracked tooth --
it seals it, keeps the air out, and it's not a big deal -- read: simple to do
and you're not at the mercy of some unknown dentist. An infection can be
irrigated and ABs will help within 24 hrs with luck.
Feel better.
S.
