Tooth ace pain relief/ inflamed gums or infected/abscessed tooth remedies: Witch Hazel (Astringent) ~FamilyDollar: for relief of Minor Skin External Irritations. Take a q-tip or cotton swab & dip it into the liquid: apply directly on the swollen or affected area. (In this case the Gum's surrounding the effected tooth. Takes the pain away straight away. (the bottle I have is 14% alcohol)-apply as needed. but avoid swallowing. Its for external use only, but if applied as described above, it took the pain away, for hours.

Walgreen Pain Reliever: (Aceauminophen)Fast release quick gel caps (500 mg each). Take only 2 gel caps every 4-6 hrs as directed. It definately dull's the pain, but will effect your liver if taken for an extended time.
Flush with warm salt water as often as possible.(salt is a Natural antibacterial).
Poultice/Compress: minced garlic or pressed fresh & (any type of tea leaves or tea leaf blend) or cold tea bag (soak in cup of water to soften)if you don't have cold use a reg tea bag soaked in warm water, remove from water, squeeze out excess water. Open Tea bag remove tea, mix a small amount w/garlic (natural antiseptic) taken out of the tea bag (keep the rest or later use as you will want to make another compress/poultice: mixed together & rolled a pre-cut to size piece of gauze to fit between the check & teeth,('rolling paper size' works well). a small amount folded flat will to fit the roof of your mouth and gum's. If you don't have gauze but have tea bag, some have 2 compartments which can be cut in 1/2 and fit better into you mouth. Tea has natural components to heal. Garlic is also a natural antibiotic /antibacterial.
In my case the one on the roof of my mouth & another poultice packed on the other side of the tooth, in between the cheek. (upper moler was effected) applied for 1/2 hr at a time. Let the air get to your gums to heal the healing process.

late sat afternoon I took a clean rubber tipped tooth cleaning tool (and after the pain killers had taken effect) but the pressure was there, I poked the rubber up between the teeth, into the gum area, It was a bit painful but I had released the presser of the abcess and over the sink spit out the bloody infectious liquid which was released. I wasn't expecting this but I got instint relief and with the warm salt water rinsed, flushing around the mouth. Again, pressing the rubber tip of the tool deeper into the gum area, then, gargling and flushing it out, SPITTING OUT; again reapplying the rubber tipped device to push out much the infection. If this is swallowed it will spread in your body!!
I was able to spit out the infection and blood till it stopped and spit out clear and clean. It was painful but also a relief!!
I then brushed my teeth w/ a baking soda paste (can be homemade as well).Reapplied lightly the Witch hazel to the inflamed and sore area, it numbed the pain on contact!
I began having pain mid Friday, throbbing pain all night, by Sat.afternoon I keep the Gel Caps going and by evening I was able to take a nap and lightly applying the Witch Hazel. (its a liquid with alcohol)form as referred to above.

Alternating with warm salt water flush & spitting it out. I have been alternating remedies to help get rid of the infection. I only put the poultice in my mouth for a 1/2 hr at a time. Also having a spit cup and wash cloth handy. (It's very nasty tasting & uncomfortable).
It worked before, then lapsed my regular brushing and flossing ritual of clean my mouth maintenance; coming back worse months later (my present condition).
Additional remedy is Apple cider Vinegar put 2 teaspoons in a cup of water before every meal drink it down. (daily as a preventative and internal cleaner and body health maintenance. I found this in and (old Vermont folk medicine book written by a doctor, recommended for animals and people) Apple Cider Vinegar is a good source of Iron,and other trace minerals & Vitamins. It the apple a day in cider form blended with the vinegar. Natural preventive and can cure internal infections, is some of what I read.

Another natural antibiotic is Iodine, can be found in a dropper bottle~Organic
Liqui-Kelp (natural Iodine daily supplement I have had on hand, 2 drops (stronger if needed) in water should help clean the infection as well.

Good luck to all of you, with what works for you, as we all know, its a big red flag something is wrong, and I want to keep this tooth if possible, before the infection could damage or kill the root. 'The End' by ManyMoons
