swish look warm water until all debris is clear. Get a Peppermint Tea bag (plain is best) and wet and stick..it took me about an hour i think let it soak and play a facebook game or too i after about an hour i swished some milk around, and i think i will acctualy get some sleep thank you god!
I don't know the man that said use honey...but I think I love him! Lol Honey works! I've tried tea, salt water, vanilla extract, cold water, warm water, cough drops, swishing, swashing anything n everything! Needless to say some worked for a short time my next step was just to let someone punch me in the face lol...until I saw honey n thought ehh why not? It worked! I can sleep now thank you! :)
I've been up for well over 48 hours now, not because I have the abscessed tooth, but because my Mother does. She's been screaming and crying for over two days now. Nothing worked, Ore Gel, the crushed Tylenol trick, olive cloves, garlic cloves... NOTHING, I didn't even second glance the salt water idea, but I ran out of options with you guys, so I said 'What else is there?' and I got her a glass of hot, salt water. She's passed out and sleeping like a baby on the couch that I brought her the water in. She's even snoring. So I just want you all to know, TRY the salt water idea first, so that your not spending 40 bucks on the other random crap that didn't work. I'm going to bed now, because I deserve some sleep. Thanks guys and girls for the help. ^_^
I have been having the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. Much worse then child birth. I saw Zoe of your remedies and the only alchol I had was Silver tequila so I soaked a cotton pad in some and covered the whole tooth for about 10 min. It did stop only some of the pain but it did completely stop the throbbing It is not the best tasting thing and it BURNS the hell out of your tongue but way worth it.
This works really well. Take 2 tynenol PM pills and crush them up until it turns into powder. apply the powdered pill onto the affected tooth. Doing this will make the whole tooth area completely numb. but be careful not to get too much on the tongue because the tongue will get numb also. leave mouth slightly open for a couple of minutes and the pain will go right away. It works!
I tried most of what you have tried. What worked for me was putting half a sliced garlic clove on the affected gum. Burns like hell, but try and keep it on as long as possible.
I also swished with bee propolis (a natural safe antibiotic) and then drank it, every 2-3 hours. I also ordered on line some collodial silver - swished with a teaspoon of 2-3 times per day.
I also bought some oregano oil on line which is also a very powerful natural disinfectant.
After using the garlic clove the first time, I was able to sleep through the night, but before I discovered garlic as a possible cure, the only pain reliever was with co-codamol. I was pain-free for eight hours. Ibuprofen and paracetomol did not touch the pain. Although it was a fantastic pain reliever, I knew I still had to kill the infection to stop it spreading throughout my body.
The garlic over two days did this. As a safety net, for the next few days I also took two capsules of Blockbuster Allclear, first thing in the morning 30 minutes before eating, and also four capsules of Serrapeptase, as these are supposed to repair the nerves.
The swelling in my cheek and under my jaw finally vanished about five days after using all of the above, except for the garlic which I only held against the affected gum on two separate days.
The resulting ulcer was very painful, but after taking a few handfuls of pumpkin seeds over the next three days, and applying bee propolis to a cotton bud and putting it directly onto the ulcer, this disappeared after three / four days.
I feel my tooth is completely healed - no pain, no swelling and I am happily eating on that side now, two weeks on from its onset. Saved myself £1,000 in proposed root canal fees. My dentist will be disappointed.
I had an abcsesed tooth which lasted almost 3 weeks, First lot of antibiotis never helped. Used clove oil which helped for a little while. The pain was unbearable at times I was in tears. A friend said to rub some whiskey on my tooth,as I dont drink whiskey I tried vodca soaked in cotton wool and put this on my infected tooth overnite The relief from pain was instant and helped me get some much needed sleep. I know this is not a natural remedy but when you are in pain one will try anything. It will give pain relief untill expert treatment cures the abcess
Purchase habanero and cayenne peppers at your local grocery store. If you cant purchase fresh cayenne peppers then get a bottle of cayenne pepper in the spice area of store. Zatarains sells a huge bottle of finely ground pure cayenne pepper.
Fresh cayenne pepper: cut the fresh cayenne pepper near the stem area and place on area of exposed root and squeeze pepper juice in nerve. This is incredible after doing a while AND will actually promote gum growth over exposed area of tooth at a fast pace.
Ground cayenne pepper: wash hands, wet fingertip, dab in pepper, rub over exposed nerve area...and try to get as much in the nerve as possible.
Eat a small piece of the habanero pepper. Remember, just a small piece. Chew it a while. The burning sensation in your mouth will be so great, the last thing you feel is your tooth/nerve pain.
Peppers are miracle workers when it comes to body health.
ive had a horrible toothache for 5 days now. each day getting worse and worse, yesterday i found this site and tried LOTS of the remedies.
-vanilla extract- helped but just for a few seconds
-cinnamon and honey paste-the 1st couple of hours it worked GREAT but now it's not even touching it.
-swishing with peroxcide-feels like i made it worse
-heating pad on my face-felt good but woke up with my jaw even more swollen and the pain has spread up to my ear and hairline and down to my neck.
-ice pack on my face-if you can stand the cold then it helps for awhile
-bowl of ice water with your hand in it- DID NOT help one bit!
i could go on and on but to be honest it's been 5 days now and nothing has helped so i don't think any of this will help. i am 80% sure it's an abscessed tooth after all the research i've done and im about to go to the e.r now. from all i've read your better off just going to the e.r if you can't afford the dentist. they will still give you antibiotics there and if your having pain like mine then it's alot better off then sitting at home suffering and trying all these remedies. good luck!
I've been up for the last 3hrs dealing with this EXCRUCIATING pain from my tooth!...I've tooken two(2)800ml of IBU and NOTHING! Usually IBUs take care of any discomfort or pain I feel throughout my body but am guessing that's not the case! I don't have any remedies of my own for toothaches so I figured I'd google what to do when u have a toothache and this site popped up! I read a few stating that black tea works or clove oil even pealing a clove of garlic cutting it down the middle n placing it by the infected area works. I went ahead and tried the Black tea bag n its relieved most of my pain enough ta get some sleep so THANK U JESUS and ALL OF U ASWELL!!
