I have had many dental problems. With and without insurance. And like most of you, I am scared to go to the dentist. Right now I am fighting a toothache at 3:54am after waking up at 3:00am in severe pain. This is what works for me.

Medicated:
2 advil and 2 tylenol, sometimes taking a third advil

This helps with the pain, though it never completely goes away. And I wouldnt suggest it, its a lot of medication and if I have a toothache for several days I will get an upset stomach from the medication.

Naturally:
My favorite thing that work for me (in no order)

Rice bag for heat

Abstract (doesnt matter what flavor, the more alcohol the better thats the purpose of the abstract)

Brushing/Flossing/Mouthwashing

Taking a warm shower and letting the warm water run over your tooth.

Taking your mind off the pain

Garlic capsules (they are a natural anti-biotic)

Warm liquids such as tea and coffee
or even room temp water.

When I have a toothache like now, usually I take some asprin, rub abstract (I use almond), heat up a rice bag and sit tight till I feel some relief. It hasnt come yet...

As a Nurse and Hispanic I am going to share a family technique we use and it will offer you relief instantly. If you take a spoonful of yogurt and let it sit over the abcess it will draw much of the pus relieving much of the pain. Do this a couple of times with Advil, tylenol you will be amazed.

What does being Hispanic have anything to do with this topic?

I have been reading for seven pages now, and this is the first mention that has been made of using yogort in a remedy-maybe it is a commom cure used by Hispanics.
