I've had mouth and teeth problems basically all of my life because just like my Mom's teeth, they weren't strong in structure. So I had to deal with A LOT of breakage and pain problems.

Now that I'm an adult, it's a lot harder to afford going to a doctor or dentist. While it is in someone's best interest to go see their doctor or at least head to the emergency room in severe cases, not all of us can afford to do so. It has been well documented in many of these home remedies.

I've been dealing with this infection for a good two years now on and off and like I said before, I cannot afford to go see a dentist or doctor, nor do I have insurance to help me out. There are no dental clinics either. So I have to make due with what I have. My father's girlfriend swears by the home remedy of using a tea bag. Most of the remedies on here suggest it stay dry but she runs it under hot water; as hot as she can stand it and presses it between her cheek and gum line where there's pain and usually it works.

I've tried that remedy and I'm happy to say that it is a wonderful temporary relief when you're in a lot of pain. There's brief discomfort and some spitting when saliva starts conjuring up in your mouth but I think that's a decent price to pay as long as your mouth stops hurting.

When tea bags aren't within your reach or you're not in the mood to put one in your mouth, alternate with clove oil. Generally, you can pick this up at a pharmacy. We have some in our WalMart store. It's about four dollars for a tiny bottle but believe me, it's worth it's weight in gold. Put a bit on a q-tip ( or use your pinky finger ) and apply to where it hurts and it usually starts working within a few seconds. However, when applying more, you may want to rinse your mouth out with warm water. Perhaps salt water ( which is another way to help with the pain. ) You don't want to apply too much in one spot on top of another layer or it isn't nearly as effective.

I had to go through the torture of massive pain that put me in tears and made me severely nauseated tonight and nobody should have to go through this. Here's to hoping any of these home remedies works for the people who need it!
