899 Home Remedies for Abscessed Tooth


I have had an abcessed wisdom tooth on my left top side for a pretty long time now, I didn't have dental insurance when it began and I didn't notice it much. now I currently do and am getting it removed next month, it has been the worst pain ever recently and I've almost been in tears over the pain, I'm scared to have it removed because of the pain involved but it will be worth it to not feel this pain everyday.
These are the things I've been doing for pain relief so I can sleep just until I get it removed.
I put an ice pack on my cheek for a few mins, chew or bite down on something soft (I use a teething ring that I got as a gift for my son but never opened or been used before) it works amazingly. Even if it looks silly to use!
Use orajel, and then position my pillow right above my cheekbone or just lay on that cheek.
After doing all of this I've been able to sleep so much better.

I suspect that anacardic acids would kill Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria and other gram positive infections such as anthrax.
I have found that the anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts and maybe mangoes do an excellent job of curing an abscess from gram positive bacteria, which are the most prevalent cause of tooth decay and tooth aches . It is also discussed briefly in the 2005 edition of Medical Hypotheses, 65; 289-292.
I would like to urge you to explore making these medicines available in the pure form from pharmacies for a Streptococcus medicine or in tooth paste. This would have several advantages; 1. a variety of application methods would be possible, needles, brushes, swabs, sprays, and etc. 2. It would probably eliminate allergy. 3. It would probably be less expensive than cashews. 4. It would be easier to apply massively locally. 4. It would be easier to test against the pathogenic species involved. 5. It would be more emotionally acceptable to the medical profession who tend to prefer chemicals over anything as amateurish as natural products. 6 It would be easier to control amounts. 7. It would be easier to carry it on camping trips, etc. 7. It would probably have an infinite shelf life.
Anacardics would be much more effective in killing decay bacteria than fluoride and without the dangerous side effects . This would be especially valuable since these medicines would probably prove to be valuable against other gram positive diseases such as acne, leprosy, Streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus, anthrax, Listeria monocytogenes, Actinomyces naeslundi, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Propionibacterium spp, and maybe even tuberculosis as well.
Acute Streptococcus pyogenes infections may present as pharyngitis (strep throat), scarlet fever (rash), impetigo (infection of the superficial layers of the skin) or cellulitis (infection of the deep layers of the skin). Invasive, toxigenic infections can result in necrotizing fasciitis, myositis and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome. Patients may also develop immune-mediated post-streptococcal sequelae, such as acute rheumatic fever and acute glomerulonephritis, following acute infections caused by Streptococcus pyogenes. Streptococcus pyogenes produces a wide array of virulence factors and a very large number of diseases. Virulence factors of Group A streptococci include: (1) M protein, fibronectin-binding protein (Protein F) and lipoteichoic acid for adherence; (2) hyaluronic acid capsule as an immunological disguise and to inhibit phagocytosis; M-protein to inhibit phagocytosis (3) invasins such as streptokinase, streptodornase (DNase B), hyaluronidase, and streptolysins; (4) exotoxins, such as pyrogenic (erythrogenic) toxin which causes the rash of scarlet fever and systemic toxic shock syndrome.

my boyfriend has had a killer toothache for some days now, n he said its the most painful one he's ever had..and after trying all what i knew for treatments,i went online for more home remedy solutions ..and found that a couple drops of {warm olive oil} in the ear on the same side of toothache with a q-tip, instantly stopped his toothache..{herbal/italian olive oil} is suggested..this is the most quickest toothache relief i ever seen take effect so fast n at the same time is also only temporary..especially when there's a exposed nerve..i just read that eating a few pieces of bread will help stop the air from hitting that open nerve and using a denture glue to cover the hole and protect anything from entering is a really good idea that im gona try if he has another more thing i'd like to share with ya'll about really painful toothaches is...dont hold your breath & dont lean forward, kinda like your head between your legs position..DO NOT DO EITHER ONE!!! very frustrating but try to b as calm as possible n breathe in & out your nose only so the air doesn't piss it off again..when you hold your breath or lean your head down wards,what happens? your blood rushes to your head n it goes straight to that weak spot in your mouth causing it to ache n act if ever you wonder why the remedies aren't that's because your're holding your breath n leaning forward causing your blood to rush to soon to fast..
i hope i helped even if for just a minute..
And remember to not b mean but b MEANINGFUL...

Try Kyolic Garlic from the health food store for prevention and as interventive natural antibiotic! You can research it online. This stuff is great for any bacterial infection.

Kyolic garlic is a natural, super-aged garlic. Don't take straight though; it tastes AWFUL, and I love garlic. Fill one or two clear vegetable capsules (also available at health food store) two or three times per day for a week or more to clear an abscess. Once I took more than this per day to clear an earache but got super sick to my sick to my stomach and had diarrhea and threw up. So I stick to the recommended amount now. Ask at the health food store if you are unsure. It probably also helps to take it with food.

You will also need to address the pain. I do natural topical treatments plus oral meds.


i have had 16 teeth removed in 2011 and ever since have had no problems with my teeth, its now may 2014 and after stopping wearing my dentures i am now in pain almost everyday. i normally just smoke cannabis and slowly the pain goes away but this is not a long term solution.. i today visited my dentist (NHS) and she gave me some Amoxicillin. I also went and bought some paracetamol that contains codeine so they were very strong. I am just coming up to 25 and am hoping to get implanted teeth soon, the pain of toothache and abcess pain is way to much to handle and ive decided that having the rest of my broken teeth out and getting full dentures will be better for me in the long run

Always visit a dentist... i didnt when i was younger and basically dont have teeth left to eat with so visit that dentist no matter how expensive/scared they are.


Haven't found the right remedy yet. Been almost 24 hours and after a long afternoon finally got some Antibiotics. You should be able to buy OTC but you have to make calls around, asking if people are good for Antibiotics. Feel stupid duing it but tooth pain is the worst. I am not some person who has a little tooth ache, you see my teeth with partial out and yikes! You need antibiotics cause no pain pill helps with tooth pain like antibiotics. Every second feels like an hour and I get an adrenaline rush with anger when its throbbing. I get mad and nasty and can't calm down. I give props to people trying all this stuff but I am a bit more drastic than most. I want the nearest wall to knock myself unconscious on. I really don't like some people but wishing tooth infection-nerve ending pain I wouldn't wish on anybody. Honestly outside of antibiotics the only thing that works is brushing teeth and washing with Listerine. I have fallen asleep many nights with the Listerine on the tooth and my mouth full of it. Pain Pills no, all that other b.s no, Listerine and antibiotics YES!


Same exact thing is happening to me on my bottom right back most molar. I had a filling fall out over a year ago. I would get minor throbbing pain (minor compared to the pain I'm in now) like in November. January rolls around and I started to get this shooting sharp pain coming from the broken tooth. All I do is pop about 12 ibuprofens a day. I don't really have dental insurance as of now so I haven't been to a dentist. 12 200mg ibuprofens a day helps me so much. I know it's extremely bad but it's all that works for me. (I've tried the garlic pills/tea bags/ all that other home remedy junk. When I forget to take the ibuprofens or lower the dose, the pain comes back 10 fold. I have no blisters or much swelling. All I have is a huge hole in my molar and it ruins my day when the pain arises.


I have a half way broken tooth on bottom L side, 2nd to last tooth. I was eating bacon yesterday, when I bit down, a small piece of bacon went straight down! Talk about some pain! Well now my gum around the tooth is swollen. I got on amoxicillin today. I was taking extra strength excedrin today, it helped but the pain is back:( So I rolled up a piece of cotton, dipped it in eugonel/clove oil, ambesol, and put sensodyne pronanel of tooth with brush. Put cottonball in and it took pain away for about 10 mins.


Tried everything I could for an abscess on my gum to relieve pain and pressure until I can get into the dentist, which thanks to a previous dental issue, I can't afford to do for another 3 weeks. I have a large abscess that was very painful and wouldn't drain. I didn't dare lance it as I have no idea where nerves in there run. What finally worked for me to opening it up was to soak a green tea bag in hot salt water. After a few minutes I squeezed the bag out and rolled it up, cutting the string off and tucking the staple side inside the roll. Then sprinkle a little more salt on the exterior of the damp bag before tucking it in between my lip and gum overnight. Had it in 1 night before being awakened by a sharp ripping sensation in the area of the abscess. I got up and took the bag out and checked the mirror only to see a large amount of drainage. I rinsed out with salt water followed by peroxide. It hasn't puffed back up yet, but I'm sure it will. Happy to be out of pain even if it's short lived until I can get it fixed professionally. If you're in a lot of pain from an abscess that won't drain: Try a salted green tea bag overnight. It's the only thing that has helped me.
