Hi all! I can sympathize with anyone dealing with tooth infections and the pain. I have a tooth I have had a filling, the tooth cracked the next day, two root canals, and a crown over the past 15 years. Even after two root canals I still have a tiny bit of nerve left due to the tip of one root taking a 90 degree turn before the end. As a result, I still feel pain in this tooth just like before the root canals. Its miserable, because it gets infected a lot. And infections can build up resistance to anitbiotics over time. A few years back, when the infections were less often, I was without dental insurance and in dire need of getting the infection gone. I was desperate. My tooth throbbed, my ear hurt, and I had headaches that would turn into migraines. Like I said, I was desperate, I remembered mom always saying to use warm salty water to gargle when I had a sore throat because the salt helps heal but it also draws out any infection. So I decided I needed salt on that tooth. I took a small glass and a goodly amount of salt and added hot water to dissolve the salt. You will have to play with it to get the right strength for you. The salt does tend to be harsh on the gums and tongue. BUT drop 3 or 4 cotton balls to soak in the salt water while it cools. When the mixture is to room temperature, take the cotton balls one at a time and squeeze a bit of the water out, the fit them around the infected tooth both on the cheek side and the tongue side. If you fit them right you will also have covered the bottom of the tooth too. The mixture in the cotton balls will seep out, just spit it out. I have done that all day before, or just worn them a few hours at a time. Every time I change them out, the tooth feels a bit better. But if you leave the cotton balls in long enough, you may see discoloration on the cotton balls where they were in contact with the tooth. I always figured that's the infection getting drawn out. A few days of that, and my tooth is loads better, granted my gum and tongue are a bit worse off, but its worth it to get the infection gone.
Hope this helps someone!

GARLIC !!!

I was reading through all the remedies, which I have to thank you guys for :D
I'm in sooo much pain, its the weekend and I got my dentist appointment on Monday.

Garlic helped ease the pain. At first it stings extremely bad and you really dont want to keep going. Keep at it. Right now I feel no pain ( knock on wood ).

I hope you guys feel better. The pain is excurciating, but don't give up.

several options are out there to help,
with a abcessed tooth.As I write this
I'am with alot of you as could not find
a dentist that would pull it right now.
A tea bag warmed with water and applied
to the tooth will pull out the infection at the gum line.Avoid peroxide at all cost.If there is a hole
or a section of the tooth missing,clean
out 1st with warm salt water.applying
clove oil will deadin the pain.cover
the tooth with soft parifin wax.this
will block out cold/food from getting
back into the hole of the tooth.Garlic
oil will also pull out infection.
You can get all of this at Wal-Mart.
The wax is in the craft section.
An old Indian trick was to use 2 table
spoons of wiskey,1 teaspoon of lemon
juice or lime,mix with baking soda until it's a paste.put on tooth or
around gum area.going to sting a little
but will kill infection fast.do 2-3
times a day to keep infection down.
Don't brush the tooth or area around it
this just cause's the nerve to be pissed.bottom line:tooth has got to,
be fixed or come out.Hope I helped a,
little.

I infused some white rum with whole cloves (get one of those little airplane sized bottles put whole cloves in it then put it in the freezer until the rum turns brown) Then crush up a pain killer, make a paste with the rum and pain killer then put it on your tooth with a q-tip and left it there. my pain was gone almost instantly

ok, So I had a serious infection in my tooth and it was so bad that when I went to the dentist to have it extracted, he couldn't even take it out. He called it a 'hot tooth' meaning the infection was so deep. Long story short a week later, after two courses of amoxocillin, bottle of percocet and still im in horrible pain. Until a friend of mine told me to take one of my ibprofen pills and smash it up and add a little bit of water to make a paste and use a cotton swab to apply it to the hole in my tooth,and after just a little tiny bit of burning the pain went AWAY!! I will swear by the method for the rest of my life. Trust me this works and ive tried everything!!

So, I have a wisdom tooth on the right side and a molar on the top left side of my mouth thats feeling pretty horrible, they use to be filled lol, but the one thing I really found that helped after many many sleepless nights was taking a single ply of toilet paper and folding it down to the equal of a rolling paper and snugging it around the teeth, its not instant relief but it works, the paper will heat with your body heat and keep cold air that you breathe into you're nose from getting into the hole, if its a consistent problem and you dont just so happen to have the cash laying around and you can handle it you can try getting a mouth piece for sports from a walmart etc. and put it in your mouth, this as well will heat the mouth piece and block any air from getting into or around the tooth, last but not least everyone seems to have their own sort of mouthwash their making, theres a Oral moisterizer called Toms, it comes in a few flavors, I picked peppermint for the sake of clean flavor, the wash consists of Aloe Vera, Chamomile, and Sage, the peppermint flavor in it is pretty intense which left room for me to add my own things to it I.E. Listerine, it seems to numb it down pretty well without my mouth feeling like it was trying to murder me from the inside out, Also, speaking of which Chamomile is also a delicious and inexpensive liquid to try, add a tea spoon of cinnamon (No Sugar) and rinse and you enjoy, you can use mroe but I decided I didnt want to take a chance on too much Cinnamon, this drink is also very helpful for stomach pains, which I also found to be a side effect of my frantic home made remedy spree, hope this helps!

No folks,
Here is the truth so sit back and take it. There are a ton of home remedies but if your tooth is infected then you will need a root canal. This happens when bacteria gets under the tooth and the pulpit literally rots. So here is a way to tell if you are dealing with a cavity or a serious problem that will need professional help. Take an ice cube and place it on hour tooth. If you experience more pain than you ever thought possible then you most likely have a problem that wl require A root canal or a sime extraction. Also if heat to make it feel better you had better make an appointment. 6-8 advils and the pain should go away long enough for you to get 4 hours of sleep. I took 8 every four hours even though it's not good for hour liver. But i was considering ripping the tooth out myself ( that's how bad it hurt) if you pain is just. Cavity leaving an e posed nerve then try the other remedies. I know the kits they sell at the drug store for a temporary filling work great.

Activated charcoal poultice on tooth/gum
Raw garlic/pills - took 5,000 mg a day
Castor oil pack on node
Vitamin c - 4,000 mg a day
Cal/Mag - 6 capsules
Alfalfa- 600 mg/ 9 capsules
Super echinacea extract- 5 x per day
ACV- 2tbs / 3 x a day
Omega oil- 1000 mg 4 capsules/ a day

This got rid of my infection in 1 day the pain lasted no more than 5 hrs.
I thank God for these amazing natural remedies. Good luck to all u suffering from tooth pain its a killer!
