Praying for a Cure

2 Motrins in 1 hr and nothing...Okay.....I have finally gotten some kind of relief Orajel has an antiseptic 'MOUTH SORE RINSE' ($8)works wonders. After 2 rinses of 1 min each my abscess popped.... I then used CEPACOL Dual Relief sore throat (Cherry-$5). I do realize this is only a temporary cure and suggest to all to see a dentist, county or otherwise, for antibiotics.


Try Lipton Spiced Chi tea bags. It has black tea,cinnamon, allspice, ginger root, black pepper, cloves. It worked great for me. See dentist ASAP.


Ok, I have a toothache is mainly my wisdom tooth -- no insurance can't have it taken out right now. It hurts so much at night.

I have tried the vanilla extract, rinsing mouth with salt/Pepper, ice, tea bag, brushing teeth, etc. Nothing works here's what does:

I kid you not, I had really bad pain that would keep me up until 3am. I read this on a site written by dentist overseas. Ready for the simple solution?

Throat lozenges! That's right throat lozenges like Chloraseptic. The trick was to put the Strepsil next to the gum area of the tooth with the abscess, so that the antibacterial effect is as close to the infection as one can get it.

With this tooth abscess home remedy, it is important to keep the lozenge in position for several hours, without sucking it.

Another requirement of this home remedy for tooth abscess is to relocate the lozenge to the other side of the tooth abscess about every half hour. So, it's between the lip and gum for half the time and for the other half, the lozenge is between the tongue and the gum.

BELIEVE ME IT WORKS! I noticed no more pain with in 2 lozenges. It's cheap and it WORKS! TRY IT!!

Hi everyone. I have an abscessed tooth, and I was browsing the net trying desperately to find something to take the pain away. My dentist gave me Vicodin, but that just makes me goofy! I've heard plenty of things; coffee beans, tea bags, garlic, onion, and more. Just like all of you, I'm sure, I don't want to try anything that will harm my teeth. I sucked on a coffee bean, and that helped a little bit. I didn't have any garlic cloves, so I rubbed garlic powder on my gums. It irritated it ( As expected =P ) but it helped.. While it was on, at least. Red wine vinegar helped me a lot. But the thing that works best for me is drinking ICE COLD water, holding it my mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. It numbs me for about a minute and a half if I don't speak. Not much help, sorry! I wish you all good luck!!


I try everything tylenol advil orajel nothing works findly use mouthwash held in mouth till felt numb then took nite time cold pills it work long enough to get a couple hours of sleep till i could call dentist the next morning liquid nite time probaly would work by drinking an holding in mouth also try some type liquior.
hope this helps someone the is terrible pain.


my tooth started hurting around 7pm its now 2am and it was so bad i was in tears first i took about 3 tylenol b/c the pain was so bad, then i rinsed with warm salt water. about 4 or 5 months ago my pharmacist told me about clove oil for my daughter she had a bad toothace as well. so i thought ok im going to try it. i got a q-tip, dipped it in the clove oil, stuck it to my tooth, held it there for about 2 minutes, once i removed it the pain was almost completley gone. atleast now i can go to sleep. whatever you do, dont let the oil touch your tongue, cheek or lips b/c it will burn!!!!!!! also it doesnt hurt to ask god to help ease the pain. i did and now im going to bed!


LIQUID ORAJEL!! It's harder to find, but WOW I'm INSTANTLY NUMB! Soak a Q-tip for a few seconds and drip it into the tooth and around the gums.


I've been in horrible pain for 5 hours. I have apses teeth both upper and lower left side of my mouth. i've never experienced a pain this bad in my life.. i wanted to kill myself lol seriously guys it has been a really bad night for me.. i took vicodin, i took naproxen, i used warm salt water nothing worked and i cried nonstop for over an hour. while i was reading everyone's comments i wanted to try the dry tea bag remedy.. it stopped the pain in the upper area where my wisdom tooth is absessed.. unfortunately it didnt take the pain from the lower part but at least i stopped crying it's a lot less pain now..
try the dry tea bag!!! maybe/hopefully it will work for you.. good luck :)


Hey guys, I'm just a teenager with a really TERRIBLE toothache and it hurts like hell. Ive tried painkillers, advil liquid gells, even the salt water cotton ball thing, I believe it or not even tried sucking it up for about 4 hours and its 2 am right now, this cavity is killing me! So I decided to get my mind of it, so i listened to music, to be specific Alternative rock and metal. And...oh my god this worked perfectly! one song that helped me the most is Astronomy By Metallica. Thats my advice guys good luck, and go find a dentist soon. =] i can finally sleep is..a life saver.


I've been in intense pain for a few days, and I've been popping motrin and it will numb the pain. I made the mistake of trying to use orajel and that intensified the pain. But I just chewed a motrin on the afflicted tooth and the pain went away INSTANTLY!!!!! INSTANTLY!!!!! I strongly suggest this method.
