I have really bad teeth and have used every suggestion that may have been suggested to me. I found that placing a tea bag (I wet it first) as close as you can to bothersome tooth will indeed decrease your pain. I put the tea bag in and then a hot rag on the outside of my cheek and normally I fall asleep and by the time I wake up (whatever the duration may be) I feel a lot better. Tea bags may not be good for your teeth as coffee isn't but I hope this helps someone because a tooth pain is AWFUL.

I am a firm believer in the tea bag remedy! First, I sterilized a sewing needle and release some of the pressure and draw some of the infection out. It did but not enough to make too big of a difference. I then put a green tea bag in between my gum and my cheek and within a half hour I noticed a BIG difference. The pain lessened tremendously and gave me such relief.
