You can also use Red cross tooth ache kit. The eugenol in that will numb even the worst mouth. another way to get a good sourse of Eugenol is using clove oil. Clove oil works wonders for mouth pains but is hard to come by.
Small acute toothache tonight; Ibuprofen not helping, and didn't feel like making late night trip for expensive Oragel. Happened to have some dried Sage, which I placed in the pocket of my cheek by the tooth. Mostly seemed like gum inflamation. Inany case, seems to have worked with no burning, and the taste is actually quite good. Garlic will be next, then Cayenne. Don't give the drug companies your hard-earned money if you don't have to! Good luck!
ive got a hole in my top back tooth and the pain was unberable i usualy use cloves of garlic but it didnt work this time so instead i used orajel and peppermint extract just dabbing it on around the tooth and now the pain is almost gone .
I been in severe pain with a tooth ache for the past 4days. Went to the ER bout 2 days ago n was given an antibiotic n 2 different types of pain killer. After reading a couple of remedies I decided to try the tea bag. Omg dis was the absolute best remedy ever. Tried it a couple hours ago with a 800mg ibprofin and haven't had any pain yet. Here it is almost 2am n still no pain. ;);););)
Well let me just say I have had my fair share of toothaches but this one has definitely been the worst. Lower left back tooth is completely gone and the whole left side of my face was in agonizing pain with an extreme earache. I tried dr. tichenors mouthwash and after 2-3 rinses I saw great improvement because it's an antiseptic. Took about 3 advil pm's and alas I was able to sleep for a few hours. Antibiotics are definitely what you need but until then.. This helped me out tons!!!
I have had an infected tooth in the gums for several months off and on. A couple of spells where it was so bad I was ready to pull the tooth myself. After a visit to the dentist and refusing to pay his extortion, but getting a script for antibiotics and pain meds I found this was only a temp fix. Since then it has flared up mildly and a method I use to good effect is to apply TIGER BALM ointment to my jaw and cheek at the point of the infection/tooth and to rub it in well and also at the lymph nodes on the neck, in front and back of the ear on that side or both to help your immunity. And this is also with the restriction of sugar from the diet as that aggravates the immune system and causes inflammation in the entire body adding to discomfort overall. I make sure that the teeth are clean and well flossed and do not use commercial toothpaste as it has toxins and sealants that prevent healing. I brush with washing soda which you can look up online. You can make it from baking soda/sodium bicarbonate by baking it in the heat oven or use the baking soda with salt to brush as this is almost the same. Use very little at a time as it changes the pH in your mouth which should be slightly acid to alkaline and will cause a burn if overused. I wet my brush and just lightly coat the tips of the bristles and shake off the rest. You can almost feel the effect immediately. Don't swallow or it may make you sick to stomach. The TIGER BALM has camphor, clove menthol and other stuff that is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and works like magic. It takes time for that to work, but you will have an effect if you put it on before bed by morning. Keep using after pain subsides to keep killing the infection. Cannot emphasize taking minerals like magnesium, potassium and vitamins to support your immunity since toothaches cause people not to want to eat due to pain. Eat leafy greens like broccoli and especially spinach fresh with tomato, onion, and garlic to get them naturally. Eating nuts like almonds and walnuts help too.
Here in the UK we sell Eugenol oil, usually in one of those dental repair kits. Tesco sold mine, anyway after reading up on what makes clove oil it turns out that it is infact Eugenol mostly and these kits are usually easier to find.
After having fairly bad pain(7/10) because of a cavity I dabbed a cotton bud in the oil, placed it as near to the cavity as possible and voila! 0/10 pain and its now been at least 4hours, hope I can keep it up until I can visit the dentist :)
I have had an infected nerve that had me in desperate pain. I have had it removed at massive expense.
My advice after trying a lot of stuff is that lots of codeine works. If you can get any anti biotics amoxyciline is what i used to help kill the infection. Tooth pain is when there is infection. I guess strong anti bacterial stuff (peroxide, alcohol etc may help kill it if it can get into the infection in your mouth. I read somewhere on here about a guy that got amoxyciline from the pet shop used for fish tanks(same stuff)fish mox. Basically you want to try and nail the infection whilst dose yourself up on whatever you can to stop the agony. Also zapping the infection by applying stuff directly to the hole in the tooth. Good luck it is the worst pain ever...
Thank you for all the tips on here, after suffering with incredible pain i tried the following and it has relieved the pain to a tolerable level!
Clean teeth with a sensitive tootpaste, rinse/gargle with mouthwash and salted water used a combination of nurofen plus and paracetemol, followed by clove oil and a damp peppermint teabag.
I would never in a million years have tried the teabag thing but by god it really worked and got me through the night. I've got an emergency dental appointment so hopefully will get some antibiotics and get the damn thing pulled out next week.
I know i'm lucky in the UK, i really feel for you guys in the states.
I'm in the army as a medic and being deployed is harsh when it comes to dental care. But I use baking soda and brush with that in the morning. If I decide to use it at night I normally do baking soda mixed with Luke warm water and swish that around then brush as normal. I do not recommend doing both everyday I normally switch off and it works for me. Please remember this does not work for everyone.
