Get 2 tablespoons of Benadryl and 2 tablespoons of White Vinegar mix together and use as a mouth wash and swish around for as long as you can stand... I've been having horrible pains for the past 3 days and it's the only thing that has worked for me. Also be sure to not drink anything for about 10 mins after doing so. The Benadryl takes the swelling down and the vinegar kills the bacteria.

Diatomaceous earth look on amazon. ( food grade only) stuff works awesome for an infection. Within hours of swishing it around in your mouth pain is gone swelling is gone. I didn't buy this for a gum infection but it works fast. And being a person that has had those nasty infections I am glad it works. If it works for you please tell it to someone else so you can ease there pain.
I take 1 tsp in a glass of water. Anytime I have a hint of swelling discomfort I drink a glass and swish it around my gums. Best of luck!

I know ALL to well of this type of excruciating pain. I just made it to the other side if it. Thank GOD! Here is what worked for me:

Lukewarm water

1. Mix about 8oz lukewarm water and salt (regular table salt) together, it should be really salty. .

2. Swish the mixture around in your mouth, specifically around the affected area for approximately 2 mins ( do this twice)

3. Pray

After doing this, I felt almost instantaneous relief.

After reading a couple of remedies here I decided that I need to post this for those suffering from severe tooth pain. I get sick of practitioners preaching about getting yourself professional help while they sit laughing and wagging thier necks side to side in the fashion dashboard bobblehead. The reason some are so desparate and grasping for answers is because they are unable to finance such services, dental pain from repeated cracked teeth, reduced enamel, full blown infection is without a doubt one of the most miserable experiences I have had to endure; if you think I don't know what what pain is then know this I've survived 3rd degree burns over 36 percent of my body. Now then, I hope not to invite those addle brained practitioners who fail to understand that some of us are so stupid as to not know that paying a major portions of years earnings or skipping this months rent is not an option at the moment time to some kind of pissing match in defense of those who just want relief until those who cannot empty their account or wallet in order to receive help from a professional at the moment but I do wish those condescending professionals would offer the kind of advice I am about to give and try to empathise with those that are in pain which they as practitioners will never have to undergo. So yes cloves do help but not whole or powdered, get clove bud oil, or eugenol containing oil in high concentration use a qtip saturated with the oil and place it as close to the site of infection as you can and invite the sting that it will deliver hold it as long as you can break only as long as nessesary because the next application will not hurt near as much and within fifteen minutes you should feel relief. The essential oil I keep on hand is Aura Casia -pure essential oils and is 75 percent eugenol. There are warnings against internal use, women who are pregnant and other cautions but I can tell you this gargling all the salt aspirin and tylenol never helped a bit, this did. It cost me about $ 7.00 at a local store in Anchorage Alaska called the natural pantry and After a day 15mins I could think again a day of periodic use and it was almost unnoticeable and in 3 days I the my misery was a distant memory. I hope that clove oil helps alleviate some others from the mind bending torture that is tooth pain.

I've read over 40 pages of the remedies listed here. I've tried EVERYTHING listed (minus a few due to unavailability of some of the more exotic items).

What's been working for my upper right 2nd to last BADLY abscesses tooth is Listerine. It's the absolute only thing that literally took the immense pain away within 5 seconds. And I'm also on 1g Oxycodone. The narcotics don't relieve nearly as well as the Listerine. One note: it MUST contain alcohol to work at all!

Also, a few times a day I numb the tooth with ice wrapped in cloth- I bite down on the chunk of wrapped ice for as long as possible. Ones it's frozen cold it is pain free for a few beautiful minutes. Listerine lasts about 15 minutes so keep it handy. Still thinking of trying to lance it but I am mortified of the subsequent pain that may cause..
