im so desparate these past few days because of toothace and tried so many ways to get rid the pain. Ive tried listerine with colgate but it does work for only a few seconds and still im unable to sleep, then ive tried taking some medicine first i bought some mefinamic acid 500mg (anti inflamatory) and amoxicilin (anti bacterial) 500mg the effect only last for 30mins. im in the middle of a sleep when the pain comes back! And yes its more worts than before, so i get up and i almost freak out because of pain. Then ive tried
warm water with salt, it calms me down a little bit. Then i try to search some remedies to the net and tried it all. Luckily the bread thing works for me. After i put the bread on the tooth hole, i feel relief. Thats the last thing on my mind but it works perfecly. Now i can sleep. =')


If you are dealing with a abscess or infected tooth, I know first hard what that is like. It was tooth #31 and the infection was at the bottom of my root sitting directly on the nerve. I was a crying baby, having panic attacks, the whole 9.

First off, if you sensitive and prone to having anxiety like me. The best advice I can give you is to refrain from reading the internet posts about people dying from abscesses! I went to the ER and the doc said the only way it can become fatal is if you go a long time with without treating the abscess and it becomes the size of a baseball. If you have a small abscess dont freak. Just go to Walgreens and/or grocery store and/or herb store and grab some Clove Oil, if you cannot find that, its ok but with the clove oil grab some Liquid Gel Advils (gel works faster) , Tylenol Extra Strength, and run to the grocery store and get some Sea Salt. Also- if you cannot find clove oil, you will find the whole cloves in the seasoning section at grocery store.

Next, dont eat or drink anything too hot or cold. If your tooth is extremely sensitive this will help alot. when I drank something I would nuke it for 30sec.

3-5 times daily mix WARM not hot water with 3 teaspoons of Sea Salt, its gotta be Sea Salt not reg. salt.....sea salt is one of the oldest natural antibiotics around, it also keeps the area of and around your tooth very clean. Another great thing is Sea Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory! Anti-inflammatory's are your best friend if you have a infection or abscessed tooth.

Now, if you have the clove oil, it is a God Send, this stuff is strong, when you apply it SPIT IT OUT, dont swallow the stuff, itll be rather spicy, but you can handle it! I took a little piece of cotton, absorbed it with the oil and sat that on my infected broken tooth, if you see the actual abscess rub the oil on it with the cotton. This will help the pain.

Next step, make sure you have something in your belley before you take Advil, it can be hard on your stomach lining. Take 3-4 Advils(prescription strength is 600-800mg) every 6 hours and in 3 more hours take 2 Tylenol Extra Strengths (1000mg). Every 3 hours go back and forth on this to help with pain.

This should give you a piece of mind MAKE SURE you get in to see a dentist ASAP, you cannot avoid this because it will only get worse.

ADVISE ON DENTIST!!!! I found out some dentist believe in taking the infection down before pulling the tooth (if the tooth is savable have a root canal instead of pulling) But if you are in major pain just find a dentist that will pull in and clean the infection.

God Be With You I hope I helped I know your pain I am currently healing from a fractured abscessed tooth that was extracted yesterday. My cheek is so swollen right now from the extraction but believe me this pain was nothing compared to the abscess pain.

God Bless- GIA

Dental cavity pain can be recovered by using milk of madar(akda) plant. bring the milk from plant in a bowl add some common salt in it. and apply it using a toothpick covered with cotton on the affected area and saliva which comes out during this time throw outside. it is actually experienced.

Tooth ache is nothing worse than any other ache as it adds to headache as well. I had a tough night with unbearable tooth ache & headache.. I tried Paracetamol tables, 3 tablets a day but it didn't work. I could not sleep the whole night and when I woke up in morning, I got some cold water in mouth which gave me some relief though not completely but then I took some HONEY with my finger tips & put it around the gums of the achen teeth.. What an instant Relief... I reccomend you to just try once & see the magic... Thanks!


Like so many of you, I have been suffering from tooth pain; Although I am very thankful for this website to obtain as much information on eliminating the pain of a tooth-ache, nothing will take the pain away forever other than going to the dentist. I tried many of the things on here to relieve my pain, they did for a small amount of time, but then I had horrific swelling in my gum on the side of the tooth ache. I finally got up the courage to go to the dentist yesterday, because it is the fear of them I wouldn't go originally. I had an abcessed tooth! The dentist drained the abcess, put me on anti-biotics, some pain meds and now I am finally able to rest.
I know the $$ is another big reason why most of us don't regularly go to the dentist. I was able to find a dentist in my area with a flexible payment plan, thankfully.
I am EXTREMELY grateful for this website.... Good Luck!


I myself have a swollen face right now from a tooth that has been crowned and now needs a root canal. I have my dentistry done in Los Algodonas Mexico, right outside of Yuma Arizona. This is a boarder town that sells discount prescriptions without a prescription, glasses and dentistry. There are many dentists there, and the price is 1/4 of what you would pay in the US. You need a passport or a passport card to cross back into US. I have had 10 crowns, 3 root canals, and upper and lower partials made. In the US I was quoted 24 thousand, in Mexico I have had everything done over past 2 years for under $2800. A crown is just under $200 and a root canal is $130. Crowns are prepped and cemented in two or three days. They offer a bed and breakfast to stay in while you have your dental work done for $30 a night. I use my tax refund each year to get my work done for me and my husband. I have a smile I can be proud of and I could afford. I worked as a dental assistant for a decade when I was young, and I know alot about dental issues. The offices in Mexico have all the newest equipment, friendly and qualified dentists. I also have a tip for those with a toothache, oil of clove soothes the nerves when you have an exposed nerve. You can buy it at the health food store in your area. This is what dentists used to use when they open a tooth to drain, as it is soothing to the nerve and an anticeptic.


I have read so many of the remedies here. I took 2 Aleve in the early afternoon and they did nothing. Came home and took two Tylenol extra strength and they worked for a little while. Then I just decided to put an ice pack on my face to numb everything.

But my SENSODYNE toothpaste has been a savior! I rubbed it on my gums on both sides of the tooth with a Q-tip. I also put a glob of it on the Q-tip and kept it on my tooth for a little while. I'm drooling a little bit but it definitely feels better!!! Thanks everyone who suggested it!!!

But I'll definitely be going to the dentist tomorrow so this doesn't happen again! Haha :)


I'm 35 years old. I have all my wisdom teeth grown fully in, they are all in the vertical position. I have only one wisdom tooth that gives me problems, such as abscess, and that's my bottom, left, wisdom tooth. Since I cannot afford a dentist, these are the steps that I use to deal with the pain and to treat the abscess as well as treat my teeth in general. But before I go into my procedures, this is what I have been noticing; I noticed whenever I do not floss my teeth for some time, an abscess would flare up. So right then, I would get my remedies together to perform an abscess treatment. This is what I use:

°Very warm water
° Cup
°Cotton swabs, if no cotton swabs use paper towels
° Toothpick
° toothbrush
° Toothpaste
° Floss

I began by running very warm in the sink. Next I put salt in the cup, just enough to cover the bottom of the cup. I put the warm water in the cup only filling the cup up a quarter. You want the water to be very salty. I would then use the bottom of my toothbrush to dissolve the salt in the water. I would take a cotton swab and dip it in the salty water, saturating the cotton swab. I would then place the cotton swab over the infected tooth area, biting down on the cotton swab. Yes this is very painful, but effective. I do not know any medical explanation for why salt is best for this, but it is. PLEASE DO NOT SWALLOW THE SALT WATER!!! When your mouth is full with saliva, discharge the saliva into the toilet, take out the first cotton swab, rinse your mouth out with the running warm water, then repeat the steps again until the swelling has gone down. Once the swelling has gone down, with a toothpick (I usually use the plastic toothpicks with floss attached to it) thoroughly clean the plaque that's around the tooth. Rinse your mouth out with salt water during the toothpick cleaning stage. After you have thoroughly cleaned the effected area, rinse your mouth out with clean water, getting rid of the salty taste. Brush your teeth as normal, then floss after brushing your teeth.

The procedure should take you at least 30 minutes to perform.

Like I said, I only do this because I cannot afford a dentist and my job. For years I have been doing this whenever I get an abscess in my mouth. If you got the money/insurance go and get your teeth taking care of.
