xylitol sugar will stop tooth pain instantly it is sold at Whole Foods or health food stores ! The pain is from bacteria which is the very reason dentists prescribe amoxicillin. Xylitol sugar is in some trident gum ......swish your mouth with it xylitol eats bacteria it works !

I use crush garlic and it works like a bom. Take half a teaspoon and put it inside your mouth where the pain is. Keep it for 5 min and repeat every half an hour untill the pain is gone.

The best tjing i have found to help with.an.abcess is simple. a tea bag placed at the site of the abcess twice a day for about 30 mins. at a time. it will actually draw out the abcess within a couple times depending on how severe it is. my husband suffers from abcesses quite frequently. he has been known to look like a hamstwer with a pocket of food in his cheek. and usually after 3-4 tea bags its completely gone. just a thought to try... a single tea bag....

If you are above age 21, and you currently have an abcess tooth with pain that just refuses to subside... you can take a swig of Jaegermeifter, swish it around on the infected area, and spit it out, and your pain will be gone in the time frame of about 3 minutes (always sooner for me).One little airplane bottle is around 6hrs of pain relief.

The downside to this however is that it will increase swelling by the time you wake up from a pain-relieved nap. although it has always helped to bring the infection back to the tooth in question for me, i have always been able to drain it myself so far due to this, making sure to eject all infectious... saliva. This remedy is not for those with weak a stomach, it is a last resort if you cannot get to a dentist right away and are in much need of pain relief or rest.

Hey everyone! So my boyfriend and i are BOTH suffering from tooth abcesses! We have both benefited greatly from this site :) He is now on penecillan(sp?) medication for the pain and to remove the abcess and will be getting his tooth pulled soon. Unfortunately for me, I have to wait another month because I am getting ready to move and I have a knee injury which prevents me from sitting comfortably in the dentist chair. But before my boyfriends pain meds kicked in (took about two days) he was near tears so i came to this site and read what everyone else suggested. Heres what I find works best: brush your teeth, pay special attention to the spot in pain. If it hurts to brush, do it gently as you can. Next use mouthwash, whatever kind you prefer. Personally I like to you a generic brand because i find then gentler and less harsh. Next try a 50/50 peroxide and water rinse. DO NOT SWALLOW. These steps are to make sure your mouth is clean or else the last step wont work. Lastly, the well beloved CLOVE OIL! Take a cotton ball or even a sall piece of tissue and pour oil onto it. You can soak it or just put it on a small area of the tissue/cotton ball. Place on affected area and hold or if possible, bite down. Stay like that until pain starts to subside and then remove. Within minutes your mouth should feel much better. I tried this with my boyfriend and he slept like a baby! Now my tooth was acting up so i did the same thing! I really hope this helps someone cause I know how bad the pain is so please try this, and get to a dentist asap! I'll be going as soon as my knee is better.
Get well soon! :)

i know the pain of abscessed teeth
always from faulty dental work
it is a horrifying experience

this has always, always. always worked for the pain and infection

- peel a garlic clove and cut a small piece to fit either right in the abscessed tooth or beside it between the tooth and gum (this will be a little bit hot on the gum and cheek, but better that than the extreme tooth pain)
- let the initial piece of garlic sit out for 10-15 mins. this produces the allicin in the clove
- place garlic directly on tooth if possible or as described above
- let it sit for 20-30 mins.
- spit it into the garbage and cut yourself a new piece (you don't have to let it sit for 10-15 mins.) and place on tooth
- continue to repeat process for 2-3 days, you should feel some relief by the third piece, and it only gets better from there
- if you find the garlic too hot on your gum or cheek, do the process for as long as you can, then simply get a bigger fresh piece and chew it to release the oils then spit it out, and don't rinse your mouth, alternate between these two for 2-3 days

May the Lord bless you all

I was in the most pain ever in my life. I literally tried every remedy on here as well as other websites. Heres what to avoid::: DONT CHEW ON THE SIDE OF YOUR BAD TOOTH, DONT EAT ANYTHING TOUGH, STICK TO NOODLES, MASHED POATATOES..ECT..., DON'T STAY IN COLD WEATHER FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTES, DON'T LAY ON THE SIDE OF YOUR BAD TOOTHE. YOU GET THE IDEA
Here's what saved my life::: NO INSURANCE AS EVERYBODY ELSE...I KEPT TRYING TO FIND WAYS TO MASSAGE MY JAW AND TEMPLE OR EVEN GET ME TO RELAX. I WAS AT A POINT OF NEARLY HURTING MYSELF BADLY, YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I SCREAMED AND CRIED, AND PRAYED LIKE NEVER BEFORE. FINALLY I FOUND WHAT SAVED MY LIFE...RUB :BIO FREEZE/icy hot/bengay..ect (found in drugstores)on your jaw to your temple where you feel your nerves pinched***keep away from eyes**, this will open up your sinuses and close your eyes..breath slowly(too much intake cant mess with your breathing if you have asthma like me). rub oragel type medicine in your inner mouth on the affected areas (ALOT). TAKE 2 ALEVES, A MUSCLE RELAXER AND 2 PAIN KILLERS., AND PRAY.....HAVE A GREAT SLEEP!! DO IT EVERY NIGHT AND YOU'LL HOPEFULLY BE FINE!!!

GOODDDD LUCK! GOD BLESS

If you have an abscesses tooth the best pain relief I could reccomend is plain old cold water. Take a swig keep it on the tooth for a few seconds then Spit it out and keep taking the water after you spit it out. It keeps the swelling down but I don't know why it helps with the pain. But always get to the dentist as soon as!
