I really reccomend to go to the dentist, i left mine for too long and had to have it drained, plus i have to go back in a week and a half to have root canal. if for some reason you cant get to a dentist go and get antibiotics, cause if the infection goes too far it can affect your brain, which would have probably happened to me if i didnt go to the dentist. (also for those who are petrified of dentist, i am also one, but the only painful part for me was teh injection to numb afterwards i just closed my eyes and before i knew it he was done)


A few weeks ago I had very,very ache pain = hole in my teeth+abscess= my whole cheek was as big as a balloon, I could not sleep and had tears in my eyes, Medications didn't work to release me from my pain and the infection (Big balloon)abscess!So I went to the dentist and asked him to be not gentile with my abscess!(Normally they wait for the medications to reduce the abscess, ha ha ! on my request He took a perforated needle(tube) and slammed into my abscess with a vacuum-er attached to it!! No more infections for me!!I penetrate the infection!! Painfully but very effective


Both far rear bottom molars completely broken to the gumline for about 3 months now. As of 3 days ago I've begun to feel pulsing sharp pain in the right bottum molar which is unbearable. I left work early today because it was just too much pain to think about what I was doing. On the way home I picked up some ibuprofin (200mg) and popped 2 in my car, 30 mins later at home I took 2 more. Within about an hour after that the constant pain was 90% gone, that's a relief for I know I can atleast try to crash it off in bed. Although it's still extremely sensitive to touch. I've tried clove oil, olive oil, vanilla extract, hydrogen peroxide, warm salt water, and have tried chomping down on tea bags...yet none of these seem to help the pain when I bite down normally or try to bite anything at all on that side of my mouth. So I'll be able to sleep, but looks like I'm eating soup until I can figure out how to come up with the finances for a perma fix.
I think we can all agree, tooth pain is absolutely awful. I've had a number of severe injuries(some life threatening) and nothing is so sharp and direct than a pissed off tooth.
I may have to make some sacrifices to pay for this issue. But this to shall pass, and one day I will look back and sigh in relief.
Hang in there, god bless, and smile if it doesn't hurt to do so.


I have tried a few of these and not many help. Ora Gel was pointless as well as Anbesol. They taste awful and they numbed just about everything but my pain. Neither did toothpaste or the mouthwash. The whole garlic and onion thing?? Too much work, I need relief and I needed it now. I have been in unbearable pain for two days and I know for a fact I have high pain tolerance! So if I am complaining you know it hurts. ANYWAYS. I have exceeded my limit on painkillers (tylenol, and aleeve)If I take anymore, I will prolly overdose or go into Acute Renal Failure. (neither are good) so I am gonna wait at least another six hours to take more. But the one thing that gave me instant relief was Rum/Whiskey. DONT SWALLOW it especially if you have taken as many pain pills as I have but sweet mother of bob it worked. Swish it around in your mouth and then hold it on the side that hurts and BAM relief. No im not an alcoholic or a pillpopper but something had to be done and GOD BLESS who ever invented sir are my hero. I can finally function again until I go to the dentist.


Ive been having terrible toothaches for about 5 years and have just made a discovery i wish i had found before. Take warm salt water and rinse very well then take a shot of rum and hold it on the infected tooth as long as you can then swish it around. I just went from 8 on the pain scale to allmost nothing. Now i can get some much needed rest. Hope this works for you as well.


First, thank you all for you insight and experiences. I tried just about every remedy offered throughout the post. My top right molar way at the back is about half rotted. The pain spread throughout the right side of my upper and lower jaw. I tried to pull it pirate style (yes it was pushing my sanity) and immediately regretted the decision. I had some success with the ibuprofen, the tea bag, the warm and cold, toothache gel, and baking soda. The baking soda and tooth gel rank number two. Number one suggestion was Bacardi 151 improvised with stuffed cotton ball and a squirter to absorb and hold it in place. Got a couple pops out of it and remain to see if it's the nerve. I will probably give up eventually and go to the dentist but not right now :). So a strong solution of baking soda rinsed and swished as long as you can stand it followed by the Bacardi cotton ball offers complete relief for now. Thank you all again.


For early onset: Floss teeth. Rub effected area with cottonball and hydrogen peroxide topical solution for at least one minute.

Create a salt solution rinse with 1/4 tsp table salt dissolved in 1oz hot water. Swish salt rinse between effected teeth for 1 minute minimum. Brush normally.

Apply a black tea bag on abscess with moderate pressure. Let tea bag sit for at least 20 min to reduce swelling and sooth gums. Do not rinse or brush.

Use hydrogen peroxide, salt rinse, and tea bag at least every 3-4 hours. Brush after consuming anything besides water. Should clear up in 2-3 days. Ibuprofen can be used for pain and to reduce swelling. If it doesnt, the infection may be too advanced and should be treated by a dentist and antibiotics.


Tea Tree works great. You may also try clove, inexpensive, antiseptic, and numbs incredibly well.


800MG Motrin is the best thing for pain,obviousley you will need a antibiotic to get rid of infection but at times i have taken 1 800mg Motrin and within 25-30 minutes very minimal pain.

if yo havea broken tooth do this
1.)goto walgrens bu dentemp os or the toothache gum.
2.)go gome, brush well, i know it hurts but you need to clean ir out first.
now use a qtip to dry the broken area of the tooth.
3.)here comes the pain, but its worth it in the end.pack your broken tooth with the dentemp os or tooth ache gum
4.)now it really hurts, i know that made it worse at least for now.
5.)use some clove oil and vanilla extact and oragel on your tooth until the nerve stops freaking out, also taking some ibuprofin will help along with excedrin back and body, because its an nsaid.
6.)in an hour or so you will notice you have to put less and less ora gel and clove oil to keep it from hurting.
this is because you filled the hole and the air and suction that were pissing ff your tooth's nerve now cannot.
just remember, dont go eating anything or it will hurt like hell since the dentemp os is now sitting onto of he nerve.but at least its not exposed!
next step call a damn dentist!
