Tea bag!!! Really did help. I have been in pain for 5 days now. I have tried Ibuprofen, Orajel, Anbesol, Hydrocodone, Vanilla Extract, Mouthwash, Warm compresses, and placing this tea bag between my cheek and tooth has relieved my pain from a 10 to a 1. It's easy too. I ran out of Lipton but i had Jasmine tea bags and it seemes to be working great, but it is only temporary. I am still surfing the web for the best solution aside from going to the Dentist which is what I should have done already but with 4 growing children I have to wait. Try it though. I have had this tea bag in my mouth for an hour now and it is still working.

Well I have an infected tooth. And my jaw has swollen because of this. I am in a lot of pain and the swelling is bothering me. I have tried the salt water trick. And I have put two tea bags on the tooth for a half hour at a time. And so far, nothing. I keep hearing the tea bag does wonders but it has been swollen for a few days now and still nothing. I just tried the tea bag trick earlier.

YAY!!! It works!!! After three days of withering and crying in pain from violently throbbing tooth pain,I tried the tea bag remedy it worked right away despite the bad taste of the tea leaves,I can finally sleep at night without waking up in pain

It has worked for me! Dipping the bag in a bit of baking soda and salt mixture salt seemed to help even more so. Perhaps creating a hypertonic solution aided in drawing out the swelling/infection as well? Not sure but it's worked better than the ibuprofen for me. I alternated with & without the soda/salt because it seems to make the skin raw after a while. Good luck!

This tea bag remedy may have some soothing affect but I'm not so sure part is placebo. I have one in right now and it seems like the infection is being pushed around instead of drawing it out. I think enough pain you will try anything. Perhaps I'm wrong. Nice post. Thank you.

I tried the tea bag and it didn't work for me it made my cheek feel like leather and it seems to hurt more than before I did the tea bag treatment I have no money for it to be pulled so I guess I'll keep looking for more home remedies

Submitted by TEA BAG BELIEVR - 3 days of swelling and pain relieved

Yesterday was so bad that you could see half my face was swollen from under the eye and nose and was getting worse. My gums were inflammed and so red I didnt even see the infection. Around 3pm I googled and read the teabag suggestion. I replaced my teabags every hour. OMG the immediate relief and soothing feeling. It takes the heat out of the infection and over the next 3 hours pulls the toxins to the top. My gums became soft and I could feel the infection. At first I used dry tea bags but by the 3rd one I used wet. I believe both work. That night I slept for 6 hours. changing the teabag quickly every chance i stirred. Miracle. The 2 nights before I hadnt slept because of swelling. Thanks yous for sharing and yes Im now a teabag believer and tell everybody about it. It makes sense pulling out the toxins naturally too. No A&E for me soon but the dentist yes !!

Been dealing with accessed tooth root for two days. I was using Vanilla extract to help with pain, but kept getting up throughout night to reapply. Found this sight and have a green tea bag in my mouth right now. It's been fifteen minutes and I already feel better. It is working.
