OMG the clove taste terrible but so far working.... hope for a good night sleep tonight. It has been so bad I am sick on my stomach.
Placing a tea bag on the tooth and area around it works wonders. I had been in so much pain until I tried this.
As I understand from my research, in most cases dentists prescribe antibiotics (usually amoxicillin) to fight the bacterial infection and acetaminophen (vicodin or tylenol or ibuprofen) to relief the pain. When the infection disappeared they start to treat the cause of infection.
As a home remedy my experience is:
1> I try to keep my mouth cool as bacterias need a warm and wet place to grow. I can do it by eating cold watery fruits, ice-cream, etc.
2> Washing my mouth with chlorhexidine mouth washer 2 times a day when I do not intend to eat for next 2 hours.
Hope you never have pain again.
Best wishes from Iran.
I decided to try the vanilla extract since I had it in the house, and it worked!! I did that, and then went to CVS to buy the red cross toothache medicine, because that is highly recommended. I haven't had to open it yet:-)
2 tylenol mixed with 2 advil at the same time sometimes relieves the oain so u can get some sleep. Pain will return but may allow u to get several hours of sleep b4 pain wakes u up
Garlic supplements wow! I was having problems with a tooth that has a very old filling in it and it started throbbing I couldn't chew on that side of my mouth and was just in pain most of the time. I needed the pain to go away as soon as possible and came across a few things different ideas that i started using. First thing I did was to start taking 500 mg of garlic every 2 hours. This should kill the infections like taking antibiotics only its way cheaper and natural. To help with the immediate pain I did two things. I put a teabag (preferably an echinacea or green tea) into my mouth right where I was halving the issue and letting it set for 15 to 20 min. After that I would mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water and swish it around mostly in the area that was in pain. you can do it every hour if you need I only needed to do that for the first day and a half and then things just started getting better thanks to the garlic. Just make sure the garlic doesn't have a lot of extra things in it the one I use has: soy bean oil,gelatin, glycerin, and silica. Make sure you read the labels of your supplements.
Our bodies go through a mineralization process throughout the day, but mostly when we are inactive (sleep). In order to assist the mouth with protecting our teeth, we have to give it no obstacles. Regular tooth paste is made with glycerin that coats our teeth and prevents the mineralization process. The only reason that all people who use toothpaste are not looking all their teeth fall out from rot is because toothpaste is loaded with a host of different chemicals that force the process of mineralization, like fluoride. If one wishes to avoid fluoride, the best solution is to use a glycerin-free toothpaste or to make a toothpaste. Make sure your body can adsorb calcium, which means keeping the digestive tract clean and healthy.
Abscesses are infections. The best way to deal with an infection to antibiotics. If you are like me and a little untrusting of commercial antibiotics, you can look to nature as there are many plant sources that have antibiotic, antibacterial, and antifungal qualities. Namely: garlic, oregano, yarrow. Eat them raw! Cooking changes the chemical composition of all things.
Most important is to stop eating processed and convenient foods during the repairing process. These foods damage not only teeth, but the digestive tract. As the immune system stems from the digestive tract, damaging it means being sicker and less capable of absorption of necessary vitamins and minerals.
I hope this helps. I have frequent abscesses and infections due to a compromised immune system and have been very successful at keeping my teeth in working order.
Ok, i have been in bloody pain all day and i tried bread, im in worse pain, ive taked 2 advil extra strenth and its not working, i dont have any garlic, ive brushed my teeth a million tims. i just tried salt water and swished it for about 5 minutes and i can feel some reliefe, unless thats the advil kicking in lol.. but i have read some of these things on here and the person who said battery acid from you car, you are on crack. i have amoxicillin and im not sure if expires, i took one till i can see the doctor tomorrow, my dentist cost $80 for two minutes, so the clinic if free.
So a few years back, I had my wisdom teeth removed and when the surgeon did it, he cracked my molars in front of them. Since then, I have had dental ins on and off. For the past two years I haven't and one of my molars (or about 80% of it) has fallen out. And now my other one has lost about 20% of it- needless to say, awful pain. I'm poor though and don't know what to do. But I tried a tea bag, warm and wet and didn't help immediately. But I took it out, kneeled on my bed and put my head between my legs and started to take long 5 second breaths in and out and I feel better for the moment. I also popped 3-500mg tylonels haha. If I feel a little pain soon, I find a few shots of vodka to numb anything :)
This remedy really works if you take a paper towel and soak it in viniger and rap your finger in itit really works if its not a finger just hold it on the affected area
